Parenting, Pregnancy


Old Dominion University


Motherhood isn't for the faint of heart! It requires more patience than you possess and less sleep than you desire. We all need a little help, and it's my goal as a writer to provide it in the most comforting and relatable way possible. If I can bring a smile and sense of relief to other moms, my work is complete!

Alex Vance is a freelance writer covering topics ranging from pregnancy and parenting to health and wellness. She is a former news and features writer for and Blog Writer for The HOTH. Her motherhood-related pieces have been published on Scary Mommy, Motherhood Understood, and Thought Catalog.

As a stay-at-home mom of two young daughters, she's become quite the iced-coffee addict! When she's not writing, she's chasing her toddlers around, working on her cooking skills, planning date nights with her husband, and watching true crime documentaries. (Her favorite guilty pleasure.)
