Breastfeeding Initiative Mother-to-Mother Peer program

Description:

The Breastfeeding Initiative Mother-to-Mother Peer program provides mothers with the support and encouragement to provide their babies with the nutritional gold standard that begins their life together.  Mother-to-mother peers are moms who have experienced similar scenarios other mothers have been through. Breastfeeding mothers can receive support from a trained peer in their home, at a local WIC office or over the phone, whether it is simply needing someone to talk to or finding a way to make breastfeeding work for them.

Audience:

WIC and SNAP pregnant and breastfeeding participants are encouraged to become involved.

Partners:

Supported through Michigan State University Extension and the Michigan Department of Community Health
