The WIC Breastfeeding Peer Counselor Program is a free program offered through the Lake Cumberland District Health Department, that provides one on one support to pregnant and breastfeeding WIC mothers. A peer counselor will contact you during your pregnancy and assist you with any questions, or concerns you may have with breastfeeding. This is done through mailings, phone calls, and periodic visits. After delivery, the peer counselor will continue to provide support throughout your breastfeeding experience.
We currently have peer counselors available throughout our district. Our peer counselors are available to support mothers outside of regular business hours to answer any breastfeeding questions our WIC mothers may have.
You can find details here about the Nutrition Services Branch of the Kentucky Department for Public Health.
