Minnesota Participant Testimonial 2018

“My husband and I were thrilled to find out I was expecting shortly after we got married. We were young; he started a new job and I was still in school. Money was tight; we worried a lot. Thankfully, someone told me about WIC. At my first appointment, I was warmly greeted as soon as I walked in. Not only did the WIC nutritionist provided me with resources we desperately needed, she helped me eat better and encouraged me to breastfeed. My first pregnancy wasn’t easy and breastfeeding sounded impossible. However, with the support and encouragement from WIC, I gained confidence and I breastfed my first child for a full year. Fast forward, I am now a mother of two wonderful, healthy teens. I am working in WIC to continue the great service I once received. This is how I choose to pay it forward. Thank you WIC!” – WIC Participant, Minnesota
