WIC breastfeeding education

WIC provides breastfeeding education and support to mothers enrolled in the program because breast milk is good for your baby’s health. It reduces allergies, colds, ear infections, and other health problems. It also boosts your baby’s immune system, protecting him or her from illnesses.

In addition, mothers who breastfeed can stay in the WIC program longer. WIC offers breastfeeding classes, peer counselors, support groups, and Board-Certified lactation consultants for complex breastfeeding issues.

If you are a WIC participant and want breastfeeding support from our peer counselors and lactation consultants, please contact us at (408) 794-0550 or e-mail [email protected].

If you are not a WIC participant and want breastfeeding support, please call Nursing Mothers Counsel at (650) 327-6455 or visit the websites below for more information.

Please visit the Breastfeeding Task Force of Santa Clara County Facebook page to learn more about what is going on in Santa Clara County.


More breastfeeding information is available in English / Spanish / Vietnamese.
