Welcome! Wendy Wisner is a board certified lactation consultant (IBCLC) and writer who specializes in parenting and health. She has been helping moms breastfeed since 2009, and is the mom of two sons, both happily breastfed.
Wendy is currently offering virtual consultations (phone or video) via Google Hangouts.
Virtual lactation consultations work best for less complex or immediate issues. If you have a baby who isn't gaining weight or if you are experiencing nipple pain or latching issues, it's best to seek in-person help. You can find a local lactation consultant at ILCA.ORG
. Here are some of the issues Wendy can help you with in a virtual consultation:
- Fussy-at-the-breast babies
- Colic/digestive concerns
- Nursing strikes
- Milk supply decrease after weeks or months of a full milk supply
- Plugged ducts and mastitis
- Starting solids
- Biting/teething babies
- Baby suddenly refusing the breast after weeks or months of happy nursing
- Toddler nursing questions
- Returning to work
- Pumping questions
- Weaning questions
You may also schedule a consultation prenatally, to prepare for breastfeeding.
Consultations typically last about 1 hour and will be done via Google Hangouts. I offer phone or video consultations; we can decide which makes the most sense for your situation. Consultations include email follow-up.
Please contact Wendy at firstname.lastname@example.org for pricing, appointments, and other questions.
