Ready, Set, Breastfeed!
Having a new baby is an exciting time for your family. By choosing to breastfeed, you are providing your baby with food that is uniquely made for him and benefits his health and well-being. Breastfeeding is a special gift to your baby that only you can provide.
The WIC Program is here to answer any questions you may have and help with any breastfeeding challenges you may face. To schedule an appointment, or to learn more about the WIC program, please contact the Health Department at 810-648-4098 Option 1. For more information on breastfeeding, click here
