Best for Baby
For Mom and Family
A peer counselor is a WIC mom who has valuable breastfeeding experience and a passion for helping other moms experience the joys of breastfeeding. We want every mother to enjoy her breastfeeding experience, and we know that new mothers sometimes need a little help getting started. Peer counselors are available at all clinics to assist you in any way they can.
TMC WIC Peer Counselors can help you:
“Nothing can compare to holding your baby, heart to heart, knowing you are supplying their every need with a single embrace.”
