Who is Eligible?
In order to meet eligibility guidelines you must be a resident in the state of Iowa. You must be a pregnant or a postpartum woman and/or have a child or infant under the age of five. Participants with Medicaid cards automatically qualify. If you are not registered for Medicaid, you must meet income guidelines listed below.
The experience of breastfeeding is special for so many reasons: the joyful closeness and bonding with your baby, the cost savings, and the health benefits for both mother and baby. Every woman's journey to motherhood is different, but one of the first decisions a new mom makes is how to feed her child. We can help you!
