Pregnancy and Mommy Support

Being pregnant, having a baby – these can be the most wonderful or sometimes the most stressful of times. Both are normal! There is a lot of assistance for expecting mothers and mothers who have already delivered.

WIC (Women, Infant, & Children) is one of the most successful programs ever implemented. WIC is a nutrition education and food supplement program that helps lower income pregnant women, infants, and young children eat well and stay healthy. WIC teaches mothers to eat healthy while pregnant and breastfeeding.
