Breastfeeding Peer Counselor Program
A WIC Breastfeeding Peer Counselor (BFPC) provides mother to mother (paraprofessional) breastfeeding support and basic breastfeeding education. The BFPC program is available to WIC mothers who are pregnant or breastfeeding. BFPCs address barriers to breastfeeding by offering breastfeeding education, support, and role modeling. Currently, Tennessee has 50 BFPCs in 39 counties.
Please call your local health department for questions regarding the Breastfeeding Peer Counselor Program for WIC eligible participants.
