My experience with EMPower Plus began during one of the most difficult and profound times of my life - my first pregnancy. I had imagined pregnancy as a magical, goddess-like experience. I thought I’d be bursting with gratitude, in awe of my expanding body, glowing and healthy and full.
Boy, was I wrong.
I might be the most un-graceful pregnant person there ever was. Along with debilitating nausea, I experienced severe bodily discomfort of every other kind, as well as incredible brain fog, unimaginable exhaustion, and was diagnosed with perinatal depression. Yes, perinatal depression is a thing. Postpartum depression gets all the attention, which can leave the depressed pregnant person feeling like a failure - I’m supposed to feel happy! I wanted this! I prayed to get pregnant! All I’ve ever wanted is this baby!
I have suffered from depression in the past, and turned to conventional medical treatment to dig my way out of the hole. But this was different - despair of another level. It felt like it came out of nowhere. I had spent the past few years feeling content and happy for the first time since I was a child. It really scared me.
Cue EMPower Plus. My wonderful husband got a job working for a company with an amazing story. I was awed by Anthony’s story of rising from the ashes to create a better life for his family and helping millions of others along the way. So I started taking 8 capsules of EMPower Plus daily - 4 in the morning and 4 at night - along with the other supplements I was taking.
Slowly, the fog began to lift. One day in the spring, I woke up feeling hopeful. I forgot it was possible to feel that. I rubbed my swelling belly and spoke to the little person within: “It’s going to be okay.”
The days got brighter and brighter and the baby got bigger and bigger. I stopped losing my train of thought mid-sentence. I could stay awake for more than 3 hours. I re-connected with my husband and finally connected with my unborn baby. So naturally, I threw a party.
One day in late May, my home filled with beautiful women, beautiful food, and an explosion of daffodils. I felt loved, beautiful, and grateful - and this all started with Truehope Canada.
