One of the primary goals of the Louisiana WIC program is to improve the health status of infants by encouraging WIC mothers to breastfeed their infants.  Since its beginning in 1974, the WIC program continues to promote breastfeeding as the optimal feeding choice for most infants.

The gift of breastfeeding will provide a healthy start for your baby’s life. In support of breastfeeding, the Louisiana WIC program provides:

  • Breastfeeding help and support at WIC clinics
  • Prenatal breastfeeding education support
  • Individual and group breastfeeding education for participants
  • Healthy WIC food packages
  • Breastfeeding Peer Counselor Program
  • Breast pump support (free hospital grade pumps & personal electric pumps)
  • Certified lactation consultants
  • Partners for Healthy Baby Support Line 1-800-251-BABY
  • Lactation rooms at most WIC sites

* You must meet income guidelines or currently receive Medicaid, SNAP, or TANF.
