I’m Rowan & Fionns’ Mama.

You see... Something kind of changes the moment you find out you’re pregnant. Suddenly you become someone’s Mama.

Yes, the way the world gets turned upside down is joyous and wonderful. But it’s also overwhelming. With the focus immediately shifting to baby, it can feel like there aren’t many resources for you.

Trust me, I’ve been exactly where you are. And I wasn’t sure I believed I could do it. It. I mean give birth, be a parent, the whole thing! But my journey through prenatal learning set me on a life-changing path that I now want for all Mamas.

You deserve to feel prepared, empowered, and excited for the incredible journey of early motherhood.

One Tough Mother is a space for you to share your journey and to learn about the real stuff that not enough people are talking about. Use the information and experiences shared in this community to make decisions that align with your individual beliefs and needs.

Because One Tough Mother is all about providing Mamas from all walks of life with real information on pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum experience — with a sense of humour (trust me, you’re gonna need one of those more than ever).

While I often make reference to my own choices, I believe there is no one right way to be a Mother. In fact, I can’t think of a more subjective and deeply personal subject.

Girl, every single person walking the planet has a mother. Trust that the power and force of that is behind you. You’re one tough mother.

Mama and Rowan
