About Us:

When we think about breastfeeding, we think "Every ounce counts." Starting with those first drops of colostrum and throughout the duration of the breastfeeding relationship, every single ounce counts towards the health of mom and baby. Every Ounce Counts: Supporting Moms beyond the First Weeks.

Texas WIC Breast Pump Program

Established in 1999 to enable WIC moms to provide their own milk to their infants and children when they cannot be together. Purpose To improve the health of both women and infants by helping women provide the best possible nutrition available - mother's milk.

Types of Breast Pumps

Health insurance, including Medicaid, provides pumps and support services. To learn more about this call the number on your card or call the WIC breastfeeding support line (940) 349-2946 or (972) 897-9114. In some cases there are unavoidable issues when requesting pumps through insurance. In these cases and in order to meet the needs of all breastfeeding moms, the Texas WIC program has three types of pumps:

  • Multi-user electric breast pumps may be loaned to WIC moms who need to establish their milk supply without their baby, such as in cases of prematurity, sick newborn, or other special needs. WIC participants who are loaned a multi-user electric pump should be given a milk-collection kit that is theirs to keep.
  • Single-user electric breast pumps may be given to WIC moms who need help in maintaining an already well established milk supply in cases such as return to work or school or other special circumstances.
  • Manual breast pumps can be given to WIC moms for any reason.

Breast pumps are offered to participants based on need. Staff are to educate breastfeeding women about hand expression as well as the importance of feeding their infant at the breast.
