About Adriana Lozada
Adriana’s life can be defined as before and after being pregnant with Anika, her 11 yr. old daughter.
If you’re a parent, surely you can relate.
Before having a child, Adriana was at the forefront of new media. After graduating in Communication Studies in Montreal, Canada, she co-founded a newspaper and media company in Venezuela. In the late 90’s she co-founded a network of youth sites in Spanish and was named one of CNN en Español 20 “Latin American Leaders of the Internet” for 2000.
Then the internet bubble burst, her home-country unraveled, her world collapsed. It was time to move on. She married, spent a year living on a sailboat, and got pregnant. Lucky for her and for you.
She likes doing hard things: being a parent is the hardest thing she’s ever done.
After giving birth, Adriana became increasingly passionate about helping others on their maternity journeys. The fire to make a difference started from a place of outrage (have you noticed the broken state of maternity care? the non-existence of paid family leave in the US?), which she has since focused into a torch that lights her way towards supporting new parents to have joyful and satisfying birth and postpartum experiences.
Adriana is an advanced birth doula, an eco-maternity consultant, a postpartum educator and a child sleep consultant. She’s a bestselling author, speaker, and podcast host. All part of her quest to help people have a smoother transition into parenthood.
As a postpartum educator, her current focus lies in preparing expecting parents for the first weeks with their newborns. She is in the process of turning her workshops into an online series.
As an author, she co-wrote “Soy de Pura Madre“, a half autobiography (written by well-known Venezuela actress and radio host, Ana María Simón), half pregnancy guide (written by Adriana), in Spanish. The first edition sold out in 3 months, and a 2nd. edition
is in the works is on it’s way to selling out.
Adriana has lived all around the world and can communicate in 5 languages. “Mama” sounds roughly the same in all of them.
