Women, Infants and Children (WIC) seeks to provide nutrition, education, and assessment to pregnant women and new mothers.  Good nutrition is essential to good health, and the Indiana WIC Program offers a range of health and nutrition education services for families to help participants put healthy behaviors into action.  

WIC serves income eligible participants who is at nutritional risk in the following categories

  • Pregnant Women
  • Breastfeeding Women (Up to baby’s 1st birthday)
  • Non-Breastfeeding Postpartum Women (up to 6 months)
  • Infants (up to their 1st birthday)
  • Children (up to their 5th birthday)

For a complete detailing of income eligibility and documentation required, please visit IN.gov

WIC is also focused on breastfeeding education, assessment, and peer support, both prenatally and postpartum.  WIC encourages women to breastfeed as the most nutritious way to feed their babies.  Mothers who fully breastfeed their babies are issued a larger food package to further support mom and baby’s nutritional needs.  Totally breastfed babies will receive infant cereal and jars of baby food fruits, vegetables, and meats at six months of age.

For after-hours breastfeeding support, participants may contact our Peer Counselor via the breastfeeding support hotline at 574-341-0441.
