Freelance Writer


Parenting, Pregnancy


Old Dominion University


As a pregnancy and parenting writer, my goal is to help other parents realize that they are never alone. Whether I'm writing research-based articles or personal essays about my own experiences, my hope is that my writing brings some relief (and maybe a few laughs) to those who need it!

Alex Vance has been covering pregnancy, parenting, mental health, and more for Verywell Family since 2021. When she's not writing, she is constantly chasing around her two adorable (yet chaotic) daughters, planning date nights with her husband, watching true crime docs, drinking too many iced coffees, and working on her cooking skills.


Alex received a Bachelor of Science in Communications from Old Dominion University in 2010.
