Our Story


Canadian-made by two moms who have been there.

At One Tough Mother, we believe you absolutely can thrive as you enter new parenthood – and it starts in pregnancy! 

In 2017 I had my first baby and the postpartum period was such a struggle. I remember calling my mom, sobbing, because I didn’t have what I needed for my recovery. Worst of all, I had no idea about the physical and emotional challenges that were coming.

That we don’t discuss the reality of pregnancy, birth and postpartum with our sisters, friends, nieces – even our own children...It’s such a disservice to pregnant people everywhere.

So let’s start sharing about the information and resources we need from the beginning: throughout our pregnancies, before our babies arrive!

Together with Allison, One Tough Mother co-founder (who is a full spectrum doula and childbirth educator), we’re shifting the pregnancy narrative from conversations about diaper cakes... to the ones that empower you.
