Women, Infants & Children (WIC)
WIC is a nutrition education program that helps families eat well and stay healthy. WIC can help pregnant women learn about nutritious foods for a healthy pregnancy and birth, support breastfeeding and help new moms meet their breastfeeding goals, and support families in providing nutritious foods to their young children so they are healthy, happy and ready to learn.

Nourishing Newborns is a weekly drop-in lactation support group located at the North Mankato HHS Office. Every Tuesday from 12 to 1 pm, a Certified Lactation Specialist will be on-site to help you with any baby feeding concerns ranging from breastfeeding to pumping. Expectant mothers, siblings, partners, and other supportive loved ones are all welcome. For those who are breastfeeding, weight checks are available.
There will be no Nourishing Newborns Tuesday, October 31.
