Vanessa tells us she is originally from San Diego, mom, dad and brother. who is two years younger. Small family and no extended family.Dad serial entrepreneur and home with family a lot. She spent her childhood on the sand and sun and skateboarding. Love SD and lives with her husband and 1 1/2 year old. Went to college in Santa Barbara and then came back to San Diego.
She always thought she would have been that big corner office, big corporate job, which she feels she did achieve, but never thought she would be doing anything entrep or pregnancy at all, but being a parent has helped see the world and her life and through a differ perspective. It is through being a mom that I have found this passion to help parents navigate birth and all the craziness that all comes along with it. As a younger person, I never imagined that I would be doing the work that I am currently doing.
She got turned onto birth during her pregnancy. During her pregnancy she admits to being pretty obsessed with researching and making sure she made the best decisions for her and consuming all that information and then being able to have a really good birth experience. and being able to Sticking to her birth plan has been great and being nice to able to help other people where they can do the same thing. Helping them make good decisions about their pregnancy and birth where they feel good and confident about their decisions and plan for their birth and execute the plan for what they want.
