Our signature program is Breastfeeding Initiative Mother-to-Mother which connects participants with a trained peer to help them reach their breastfeeding goals. We also have other resources to support breastfeeding mothers on our website.

The Breastfeeding Initiative Mother-to-Mother Peer program provides mothers with the support and encouragement to provide their babies with the nutritional gold standard that begins their life together. Supported through Michigan State University Extension and the Michigan Department of Community Health, WIC and SNAP pregnant and breastfeeding participants are encouraged to become involved. Mother-to-mother peers are moms who have experienced similar scenarios other mothers have been through. Breastfeeding mothers can receive support from a trained peer in their home, at a local WIC office or over the phone, whether it is simply needing someone to talk to or finding a way to make breastfeeding work for them.
