The Clinton County Department of Health's WIC (Women, Infants and Children) Program is pleased to announce the expansion of their breast pump program to include hospital grade breast pumps. In the past, the WIC Breast Pump Program has provided, at no charge, a variety of breast pumps to breastfeeding mothers enrolled in the WIC program. With the addition of the hospital grade pumps, moms with special needs, such as a mom with a premature or ill baby, will be able to obtain a pump that will help establish or maintain their milk supply. There is no cost for WIC participants to borrow this pump.

WIC participants can contact the WIC office at 565-4830 for more information on this program. They can also call to be connected with a Breastfeeding Peer Counselor for help with breastfeeding concerns. Women not currently enrolled in the WIC program may call for program enrollment guidelines and information on
other resources for pumps and breastfeeding support.

WIC recommends breast milk as the best food for babies. The Breast Pump Program helps WIC to provide breastfeeding support, assistance and education to the mothers of Clinton County.
