Research shows that there is no better food than breast milk for a baby's first year of life.
Breastfeeding can improve the health of mother and baby. Babies receive nutrients that only you can provide, and mothers can actually lower their risk of developing diseases like cancer and heart disease.
Mothers and babies shouldn't miss out on these benefits. We encourage all mothers to choose breastfeeding for good nutrition from the beginning.
Mississippi state law now upholds your right to breastfeed at work or in any public place.
Eligible WIC clients can now get breastfeeding support 24 hours a day for FREE with the Pacify app.
Pacify connects you with live lactation consultants who are available 24/7 via video to offer breastfeeding support and answer other feeding related questions.
Simple and easy to use right from home, there are no appointments required and you can call as often as you need to.
Sign up today! Get your membership code, download the app, and sign up at pacify.com/ms-wic. Or talk to your local WIC staff about how to get started.
