Ericka was encouraged by a friend to receive WIC during her first pregnancy and had a wonderful experience. Ericka used the WIC education she received while her son was in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Erika’s second pregnancy was overshadowed by depression; her WIC counselor Danielle, noticed Ericka was disengaged. With compassion and encouragement she assisted Ericka in finding solutions to her problems. Ericka has come full circle with WIC by her side, every step of the way. She now helps and empowers WIC participants that she sees as a WIC staff.
