Breastfeeding Support Services

Pregnant women, new mothers and their families often have questions about breastfeeding, or need help in getting started. The Breastfeeding Support Services program offers telephone counseling for families with questions, as well as information on breastfeeding-related services and suppliers in Lexington and around Central Kentucky. Extra services are available to families participating in the WIC program.

For more information, call Doraine Bailey at (859)288-2348 or email DoraineF.Bailey@ky.gov

Monthly "Breastfeeding Basics" classes are given at the South WIC Clinic. To learn more, click here.
