Hi! Nice to meet you. I’m Wendy, mom of two, writer, and lactation consultant.
You may have seen my articles about motherhood and breastfeeding on Scary Mommy, Club Mid, Babble, The Washington Post, Brain, Child Magazine, and elsewhere. I’ve written two books of poems, and I have an MFA in Poetry from Hunter College, where I taught writing and literature for five years.
I am a board certified lactation consultant (IBCLC) in private practice. I offer breastfeeding consultations to mothers in Queens and Long Island (Bayside, Douglaston, Little Neck, and Great Neck), and via phone to mothers worldwide. I understand from experience how difficult the first days of breastfeeding can be, and I am committed to helping mothers find their way with breastfeeding, whatever their breastfeeding goals may be.
My other interests include dark chocolate, yoga, walking, and jogging. I spend way too much time on Facebook, so connect with me there.
Special thanks to Erin Chapman, who provided the gorgeous photo of her son Christian (7 months at the time) for my logo. Find more of her photos here, on Facebook.
