Indiana Participant Testimonial 2018

“With my first child I knew nothing about breastfeeding and wasn’t on WIC during that pregnancy. My doctor never even mentioned breastfeeding to me, so as a result I did not breastfeed. Things were different with my second pregnancy. I was on WIC and I got necessary breastfeeding information and support. I nursed my second child until past her 3rd birthday. As a matter of fact I work with the nutritionist who was my support as I became a WIC clinic assistant and I am now currently supporting WIC moms as a breastfeeding peer counselor. I feel a very close connection to my WIC moms since I have been in their shoes.” — WIC Participant, Indiana
