Family Love
Breastfeeding Peer Counseling Program

NNHSC utilizes "Loving Support Through Peer Counseling: A Journey Together," a training curriculum developed by USDA Food and Nutrition Service, to implement the peer counseling program that provides WIC participants the education and support needed to assist in achieving their goals surrounding breastfeeding. Combining peer counseling with the ongoing breastfeeding promotion efforts in WIC has the potential to significantly impact breastfeeding initiation, duration and exclusivity rates among WIC participants.
