If you are a WIC participant, contact your local agency if you need help getting a breast pump. With changes from the Affordable Care Act, many health insurance companies are now covering breast pumps. Many hospitals will also provide manual pumps if they are available. Before buying a pump, contact your insurance company, or contact WIC.
A meeting space for pregnant and breastfeeding moms to support one another, socialize, and get breastfeeding clinical support if needed. A free light meal is served and a baby weigh station is available.
