Breastfeeding Peer Counselor Program

WIC peer counselors are mothers in your community who have personal experiences with breastfeeding. WIC breastfeeding peer counselors provide a valuable service to help mothers start and continue breastfeeding. They are trained to provide basic breastfeeding information, and help education, support, and role model for all mothers who are interested.

For more information, contact our peer counselors:

  • Melanie Byrd at 828-764-9212 (English)
  • Irma Sepez at 828-764-9208 (Spanish)

We will refer you to lactation consultants and healthcare providers as needed.
