Today we talk with Kristine, the co-founder of One Tough Mother, on the podcast! One Tough Mother is a Canadian-made company by two moms who have been there.
At One Tough Mother, they believe you absolutely can thrive as you enter new parenthood – and it starts in pregnancy!
In 2017 Kristine had her first baby and the postpartum period was such a struggle. She remembers calling her mom, sobbing, because she didn’t have what she needed for her recovery. Worst of all, she had no idea about the physical and emotional challenges that were coming.
Kristine believes that when 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.
One Tough Mother aims to start sharing about the information and resources we need from the beginning: throughout our pregnancies, and before our babies arrive!
Together with Allison, One Tough Mother co-founder (who is a full spectrum doula and childbirth educator), they are shifting the pregnancy narrative from conversations about diaper cakes... to the ones that empower you.
