Every mom and baby is an important part of our community. Mothering–and fathering–is an important job. The health and happiness of every family member contributes to a happy, healthy community.
The information here is presented to help moms and their babies reach toward their fullest health potential and find their greatest sense of fulfillment and happiness. Breastfeeding is the natural, normal expression of mother-love. It is unparalleled in providing the basis for good health and good eating habits for a happy, healthy lifetime.
How much does it matter?
St. Clair County WIC has initiated the Breastfeeding Peer Counselor program. The role of the Breastfeeding Peer Counselor is to help mothers and mothers-to-be with common breastfeeding issues and questions in order to enhance the mother-baby breastfeeding experience. WIC Peer Counselors have an important role in educating and supporting WIC mothers and may share their own personal breastfeeding experience for support and encouragement. Peer Counselors provide services through different communication channels such as classes, support groups, one-on-one counseling sessions and phone calls. Andrea McCabe is St. Clair County WIC’s Peer Counselor who is also a breastfeeding working mother of three children. Andrea can help and support breastfeeding moms through their breastfeeding journey and enhance their breastfeeding success.
