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.
