Moms and Babes Too, Inc. WIC provides our pregnant mothers with the support they need to make an educated choice on how they will feed their new baby once he or she arrives.
This agency has breast feeding specialist on board as well as our moms having access to a Certified Lactation Counselor in the event this is needed. All personnel on staff at Moms and Babes attend a quarterly breastfeeding training so that proper guidance can be given to our pregnant breastfeeding moms.
