Loving Support Through Peer Counseling: A Journey Together

Developed by USDA to use the WIC Loving Support promotional campaign in a peer counseling setting. Peer counselors receive training on how to support prenatal and breastfeeding mothers in WIC programs at home over the telephone. Peer counselors may provide clinic-based counseling, make post-partum visits, lead prenatal breastfeeding classes and postpartum support groups, and/or provide one-on-one support in the hospital setting.
