My Mission & What I’m About

Hey everyone! I’m Vanessa, or Nessa to my friends and the founder and creator of The Pregnancy Pantry

I’m a mum of two, a wife and a total self confessed nutrition geek. I studied journalism before doing a total 180° and going on to study catering, before eventually branching out and discovering my true passion as a Nutritional Health and Wellness Coach specialising in VEGAN Nutrition & all things pregnancy.

Over the past few years I’ve noticed a huge amount of conflicting information out there surrounding pregnancy and veganism and primarily that centres around whether it’s possible to sustain. Which is why as a Certified Vegan Nutritionist I want to make sure you get the right advice from someone who has successfully navigated their way through a plant based pregnancy.

I honestly think these past few years has seen a huge change in the way we see food, with more and more of us becoming conscious of the foods we eat, whether that be food that is more sustainable, and ethically farmed or just making the decision to consume a greater range of fresh unprocessed foods.

As a writer; I love to write articles that draw from personal experience and my journey into motherhood, overcoming obstacles along the way and finally learning to accept change and the cold hard fact that sometimes life throws you a giant curve-ball that you just can’t dodge. So, whilst the site is predominantly centred around plant based nutrition; you’ll also find a range of articles focusing on lifestyle and wellbeing and a wider spectrum of pregnancy.
