Breastfeeding Training For Local WIC Staff
Access to the Loving Support breastfeeding trainings has been extended to provide more time to agencies to acquire and adapt to the WIC Breastfeeding Curriculum. The following downloads will remain available and are scheduled to be retired later this year:
Loving Support Through Peer Counseling: A Journey Together - For Training Peer Counselors
WIC Offices can take advantage of the updates and additional features when you transition to using the WIC Breastfeeding Curriculum. WIC Agencies can gain access to the Curriculum by contacting your State or Regional WIC Office for further instructions.
For more information about curriculum content and training opportunities, please contact your State or Regional WIC Office.
