Hi! Nice to meet you. I’m Wendy, mom of two, writer, and lactation consultant.
You may have seen my essays on Scary Mommy, 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 four years.
I am a board certified lactation consultant (IBCLC) and former La Leche League leader. After spending the past 8 years working with thousands of breastfeeding moms, I am currently on an indefinite hiatus, but am enjoying being a writer and advocate who covers breastfeeding, women’s health, the postpartum period, and motherhood.
My other interests include dark chocolate, yoga, walking, and jogging. I spend way too much time on Facebook, so connect with me there.
