Breastfeeding Peer Counselor

Breastfeeding is the natural and best way for moms to feed their babies. The act of breastfeeding comes with many benefits for mom, baby, and our environment. For example:

  • Breastmilk has everything baby needs to grow and develop well
  • Breastfeeding saves families money since mom makes everything herself
  • Breastfeeding helps moms recover from birth faster
  • Breastfeeding reduces the amount of plastic waste produced by feeding baby

Choosing to breastfeed is the natural and best option for babies and moms, but it can be challenging if a mom doesn't feel she has the support necessary. Here at Andrew County Health Department, we have services available for breastfeeding moms as they experience the journey with their babies.

This section covers more information about breastfeeding and the services provided by the Andrew County Health Department. Our goal is to help you be successful as you nurse your baby, whether it's for a few months or years.
