Breastfeeding helps to form a special bond between mother and baby, but support and encouragement from other moms can go a long way.

That’s why WIC has developed the Virtual Breastfeeding Buddy Program — to help breastfeeding moms connect when in-person isn’t an option. In this program, mothers are matched with other WIC moms for breastfeeding support through listening, sharing experiences, offering encouragement, and celebrating milestones. Through this program, you can form bonds that will last a lifetime.

Having a new baby is tough.

Building a support network can help moms reach their breastfeeding goals. Having a Buddy facing similar challenges can make all the difference in the breastfeeding experience. Moms aren’t alone. They have their Breastfeeding Buddy to call.

How the Virtual Breastfeeding Buddy Program Works

  • WIC will match moms of similar due dates, availability, and primary language spoken.
  • Buddies can connect virtually, in the way that works best for them — either over the phone, by text, or online.
  • Moms will participate in monthly classes for the duration of the program. Monthly meetings will include guest speakers on topics relating to “team building and mental hygiene.”
  • Virtual activities will include paint nights, cooking demonstrations, yoga, dance lessons, and vision boards — to name just a few.
  • And best of all, moms will be recognized for regular monthly participation.
