WIC Research, Policy and Practice Hub WIC Research, Policy and Practice Hub

WIC mom, Michigan

“When expecting, my doctor made sure medical things were going well, but I never remember him asking if I was able to maintain a good diet and what foods would help my baby as he grew. WIC did that. And they didn’t just give me a handout to read. They talked to me, helped me build ideas, and gave practical, realistic suggestions.

“WIC taught me the value of breastmilk. WIC provided me with a pump so I could produce breastmilk for my son . When we learned he needed a specialized formula, I donated 6 months worth of frozen breastmilk to another mother unable to produce milk for her medically fragile daughter. Her daughter is now thriving and healthy.”
