Angela Horiuchi-Yvkoff and Karen
Vardeny started Tummy Talk™ after the search for
the perfect pregnancy journal fell flat. Realizing that
we would have to purchase multiple books to piece together
all the elements moms-to-be want most, we decided to create
one special journal that had it all. The Tummy Talk pregnancy
book provides moms-to-be and new families with a specially
designed journal to chronicle all their feelings and intimate
thoughts throughout the pregnancy and birthing process,
while also providing space to keep special memorabilia
and photos—all the things your baby (and you) will
enjoy looking back on with each passing year.
When it comes to business, Tummy Talk is our second “baby.” We’ve
already been schooled in entrepreneurship from another
corporate child, The Fusion Factory: a corporate event
planning and management company. After several years of
wonderful successes, we now enjoy the ability to work from
home, do something we love and call each other best friends.
Angela, an “auntie” many times over, brings
years of experience in marketing, production and event
planning to Tummy Talk. With scores of baby showers, 1st
birthdays and endless baby conversations under her belt,
she knows more about morning sickness and sippy cups than
some dads. As an avid scrapbooker and doting wife, Angela
enjoys being a “mom” to her two Malteses, Kozmo
Karen, mother to Lauryn, brings years of professional communication
experience and event planning to the journal. Even more valuable
is the personal experience of her pregnancy and surviving
36 hours of labor, only to end up delivering via C-section.
Now spending her time chasing her daughter Lauryn around
the house, she’s still trying to figure out the best
time to add baby #2 to the family!
