Free e-guides for each trimester!

👋 Hi – I'm Kristine, the co-founder of One Tough Mother, and when I first found out I was pregnant I was so. freaking. excited. But from the very beginning, it was way more challenging than I anticipated.

First trimester is hard... and honestly? A little weird. You have this amazing BIG news but you can't really share it (well, you absolutely can and that's lovely, but many don't feel ready). So you're left wondering, Okay, what are the next steps? You don't have a health care provider yet. You're nauseous, super exhausted, and feeling anxious... But somehow nothing out there speaks to this experience.  

That's why we made our free First Trimester e-Guide. It's a roadmap that gives you the must-know info for those first weeks when you need support most. And we continued with our free second and third trimester guides because you deserve to be supported the whole way through. I sure wish I had been!

So please feel free to download any or all of these free guides and we are truly honoured to be included on your pregnancy journey!
