Comment from Shelley Fredieu: Hello, I wanted to get some information about WIC for my daughter. She is 3 months pregnant, has a good job and insurance but as you know having a baby is very expensive, when I was pregnant with her I came to the Health unit and received what was called the Medical Card back in 1996. I wanted to see if there is still something like that for her to get some help as well. I just don't know where to start or what to tell her to do. Can you please give me some information so I can guide her in the right direction. Thank you, Shelley Fredieu
