Inter-Tribal Council of Nevada Participant Testimonial 2017

“Before I got pregnant, and even most of the time during, I thought I would never breastfeed. I figured it just wasn’t for me and had no interest in trying. When I started going to my WIC appointments they gave me breastfeeding information and educated me on the benefits of breastfeeding my baby. This convinced me to try it in the beginning not thinking I would last very long. I have now been breastfeeding my daughter for 2 years and it was the best decision I ever made. The bond we have created is something I don’t think ever would have happened with formula. If I had not joined the WIC program I never would have known the joy I get from breastfeeding my child.” — WIC Participant, Inter-Tribal Council of Nevada
