WIC serves as an adjunct to the health care system. WIC enjoys a reciprocal relationship with the health care community, receiving referrals from private and public health care providers and providing referrals as needed for health and social services.
Referrals from WIC include immunizations and substance abuse counseling and treatment.
WIC encourages persons already receiving medical services to remain under their physicians' care. It also encourages individuals not receiving medical care to seek and maintain appropriate care.
Breastfeeding Promotion and Support is an integral part of the WIC Program. WIC strives to increase the incidence and duration of breastfeeding among women enrolled in the Program.
All WIC agencies have trained personnel ready to assist mothers in making informed decisions about their infant feeding choice. WIC also instructs mothers in the basics of breastfeeding.
Many WIC agencies have breastfeeding peer counselor support programs that provide mother-to-mother counseling. In addition, many local WIC agencies provide breastfeeding aids such as manual and electric breast pumps. For support in breastfeeding call our Warm-Line at 336-6464.
WIC offers a food package for participants who exclusively breastfeed their babies. This food package includes canned tuna fish and carrots as well as additional amounts of milk, cereal, cheese, juice, and peanut butter or dry beans already receiving.
