Wendy Blumfield was born in London. There she started a career in publishing and feature writing but when she moved out of the city she completed London University extramural studies in Social Psychology and trained with the National Childbirth Trust to teach and counsel pregnant women and new parents.

In 1974 she came to live in Israel from Fleet, Hampshire to Haifa with her husband and four small children. 

In Israel she co-founded the Israel Childbirth Education Center, trained new counselors and started working both in her private studio, Rambam Hospital and in community centers.  She co-ordinated the childbirth preparation courses for the Students Union at the Technion.

Parallel to this, she continued writing freelance for Israeli and overseas journals. Her book, "Life After Birth – Everywoman’s Experiences of the First Year of Motherhood," was published in the UK, translated into Spanish and Russian, and her anthology, "The Soldiers` Mother", was published in Israel by Bibliobooks. She has been writing poetry all her life in extreme situations of joy and stress and is on the Board of Voices Israel Group of Poets in English.

Her late husband David was a retired computer systems analyst and she has eleven grandchildren.
