Do you remember what you thought motherhood would look like?
Raise your hand if your living room looks like a toy store exploded and all of your shirts have stains on them. Jennifer Cervantes, founder and CEO of jewelry brand Tough as a Mother Tribe discovered that being a parent is actually way messier, louder and chaotic than she ever thought possible (but in the best ways possible).
Cervantes founded Tough as a Mother to help women, and parents alike, find the strength to endure the real challenges of motherhood. The brand is here to help moms find the energy to make it through sleepless nights and challenges we never knew existed whether that’s a miscarriage, the darkness of postpartum depression, the stress of feeling overwhelmed and underprepared or just being there when your kid needs support.
Tough as a Mother utilizes the power and meanings of gemstones and names to design pieces that honor the most joyous and raw parts of motherhood and parenthood.
“When you purchase a personalized Tough as a Mother piece, you quietly unite with mothers across the world through our common bond. Our trials and triumphs through our motherhood journeys become shared experiences with each other, each of us silently cheering the others on. Whether you are buying for yourself, a first-time mom just embarking on her motherhood journey, or a third-time mom choosing hope as she carries her rainbow baby, you are in the right place,” said Cervantes.
Actor Griffin Matthews says, “One of my favorite experiences of the [Golden Globes] was getting to meet other beautiful artists. We have been so starved for human connection. Tough as a Mother gifted me a stone necklace to protect me on my journey as a daddy.”
