Breast Pump Program

To improve the health of both women and infants by helping women provide the best possible nutrition available – mother's milk – the Maine WIC program offers two different types of breast pumps.

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 an electric pump also receive a milk-collection kit that is theirs to keep.

Manual breast pumps can be given to WIC moms for any reason.

Breast pumps are offered to participants based on need and availability. Call your local WIC clinic to see whether one is available for you or your partner.
