Vermont Participant Testimonial 2017

“WIC has changed my life through support by the Breastfeeding Peer Counselor Program. I was determined to breastfeed my precious baby boy. After a day with not much luck and some not-so-helpful suggestions from the hospital staff I was beginning to get discouraged. I called my Peer Counselor. She was amazing! She came right to the hospital, and gave me the support and confidence that I needed. I attended several support groups throughout my son’s infancy and perfected our latch, continuing to nurse him for his first year of life. This was the best thing that has ever happened to us, an experience that I wouldn’t change for anything.” — WIC Participant, Vermont
