Hi! Nice to meet you. I’m Wendy, mom of two crazy, delicious boys, a writer, and lactation consultant.
I’m a regular contributor to Scary Mommy, and you may have seen my essays in The Washington Post, Huffington Post, Full Grown People, 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 until my first son was born. These days, I do most of my writing on my phone while I lie in the dark waiting for my kids to fall asleep.
I understand from experience how difficult the first days of breastfeeding can be, and I feel called to help mothers find their way with breastfeeding, whatever their breastfeeding goals may be. I am a board certified lactation consultant (IBCLC) in private practice. I offer in-person consultations for moms in Long Island and Queens, NY, as well phone or Skype consultations for mothers worldwide.
My other interests include dark chocolate, yoga, walking, and jogging. I spend way too much time on Facebook, so connect with me there. You can also email me, (firstname.lastname@example.org) or follow me on Twitter.
