We are here to provide new mothers with breastfeeding support, encouragement and skills to make breastfeeding a success. We offer Breastfeeding Peer Counseling through the WIC Program in person, by text, or over the phone.
Breastfeeding Peer Counseling
The Woman, Infants, and Children (WIC) Program offers breastfeeding peer counseling as part of its benefits and services. New moms can reach out to a trained breastfeeding peer counselor in person, by text, or over the phone to get the information, resources, and support they need.

In-Person Counseling: Mothers can drop in at WIC Program Offices at Mount Vernon and Greenburgh locations during business hours to speak to Breastfeeding Support Counselors.
Counseling by Phone or Text: WIC mothers can also reach out to their Counselor during business hours with a phone number provided to them.
