When I started out as a writer, I never knew my path would lead me to reading and writing stories about mucus plugs and cradle cap over breakfast!
Nehal Aggarwal is an editor at The Bump. In her role, she updates and creates digital editorial content, as well as manages content sent out in The Bump’s biweekly newsletter. Nehal started out as The Bump’s associate editor, in which she managed the brand’s news vertical and helped with the coordination of The Bump’s Best of Baby and Best of Pregnancy Awards programs. When she’s not busy working on her next story, she can usually be found going down a Wikipedia rabbit hole or reading a book at her favorite Arlington coffee shop.
Nehal earned her Bachelor’s of Art degree in creative writing, along with a minor in photography, from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. During her college years, she also spent time studying abroad in Ireland, Cuba and Denmark.
Nehal interned at a handful of publications during her undergraduate years and landed her first journalism job with a fellowship at Washingtonian Magazine, a regional publication based in Washington, DC. After her fellowship, she went on to work as an editorial associate for Aaptiv, a fitness startup based in New York City, where she learned about digital journalism and content marketing. She landed at The Bump in 2019 and has been a part of the editorial team since.
