Hi! Nice to meet you. I’m Wendy, writer and lactation consultant.
You may have seen my articles on Scary Mommy, where I work as a staff writer and social media manager. My essays have appeared on The Washington Post, VICE, Babble, Family Circle, Parenting Magazine, Mom.me, Talkspace, Brain, Child Magazine, and elsewhere. I am the author of two books of poems, and I have an MFA in Poetry from Hunter College.
For 8 years, I worked with thousands of breastfeeding moms as a board certified lactation consultant (IBCLC) and La Leche League leader. I have since closed my practice, but I am enjoying being a writer who covers breastfeeding, women’s health, the postpartum period, and motherhood. Other topics I frequently cover include mental health, children’s health, general health, nutrition, poverty, and education.
My other interests include dark chocolate, yoga, walking, and jogging. I spend way too much time on Facebook, so connect with me there.
