Advice for Moms Advice for Moms

Hi! I have my initial appointment tomorrow and would like to know if they will be able to give me something right away or if I will have to wait. Please spare me your WIC bashing-this was a pretty tough year for us and I have never had to ask for help before.

Quoting TheMommaJessie:

they give you a month or three months worth of vouchers at your first appointment. good for you that you are asking for help when you need it.


Thanks! A friend of mine had to talk me into it. I looked online and was surprised on all the items they give you.


It sounds like it! I was nervous about the appointment but the woman on the phone who made the appointment was so wonderful.

They may have a food pantry too. The Wic office here does.

And you're sure you're not talking about DSHS?? Cuz I don't get their help until after baby is born. WIC is supposed to help during pregnancy too. :s

I didn't get anything until she was born.

Wic if eligable usually right away. They cover milk, beans, cheese, cereal, and a couple other things. The vouchers give you exact details of what to get. If eligable for food stamps (usually have to have a child born already) then it takes time bc they mail you a card ect and gets filled once a month which covers food but no "paper products"
