About the Program

The Breastfeeding Peer Counseling Program (BFPC) provides education and support for pregnant and postpartum women to ensure a successful breast-feeding experience. The BFPC program is based on the FNS WIC Breastfeeding Model for Peer Counseling (formerly called Loving Support© Model for Peer Counseling).

The program utilizes peers to encourage and support WIC mothers to breastfeed their infants via mother-to-mother support. Peer counselors are paid paraprofessionals within WIC. Peer counselors are well trained and supported by breastfeeding experts. Peer counselors can extend the Nebraska WIC Program’s reach with breastfeeding promotion, education, and support by helping women initiate and continue exclusive breastfeeding through offering peer support during critical weeks after delivery and beyond.

We Serve

This is for pregnant women, breastfeeding women, new mothers, or fathers/partners wanting to learn more about breastfeeding in order to support the new mom.
