Breastfeeding

Breastfeeding Support

Breast milk is the optimal nutrition for infants so WIC provides breastfeeding support to moms and babies. Our efforts in supporting our moms shows in our 79% breastfeeding initiation rate! At our clinic we have 4 lactation consultants on staff to help you with any breastfeeding questions or concerns. They can also provide breast pumps, if after assessment, it is found that one is needed and they will also help you with the paperwork to receive a breast pump through your insurance. The Johnson county WIC program also has breastfeeding peer counselors whose role is to promote breastfeeding and provide additional support and encouragement.

We offer breastfeeding classes every day of the week at different times of the day so you can find something that fits your schedule.

Breastfeeding classes and support are offered to EVERYONE, FOR FREE, even if you are not participating
in the WIC program so feel free to stop in or give us a call if you need to speak to a lactation consultant.
