The mission of the Butte County Public Health Department (BCPHD) is to protect the public through promoting individual, community, and environmental health. 

WIC Breastfeeding Support

We know that breastfeeding can be difficult, and we want to provide all the support you need to be successful. WIC recommends exclusively breastfeeding your newborn for at least six months so we have breastfeeding experts available to assist you with all of your breastfeeding needs. In addition to our Lactation Consultant, most WIC staff are Certified Lactation Educators who are here to help you meet your breastfeeding goals and provide you with information and helpful tips. By meeting with a breastfeeding expert, you will receive one-on-one personalized breastfeeding education and support for you and your baby.

Meet our Lactation Consultant

Sam Randlett-Major, RN, IBCLC is an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and Registered Nurse with over 30 years of experience. She is here to help moms feel confident and successful with breastfeeding by providing support and education during pregnancy as well as after delivery.
