Kate: As mother of two beautiful children I was thrilled to find out we were expecting another baby. But to be honest, I took a deep breath hoping this pregnancy would be easier than my previous two. You see, my previous pregnancies were not easy even though I did what the doctor said and took the prenatal vitamins prescribed to me.
With my first two babies, I was put on bed rest, as I required close monitoring for cervical and blood sugar issues. With pregnancy also came sheer exhaustion. Have you ever tried resting and relaxing with a toddler and a young child running around the house? My goal of the day was to be able to nap when my children took theirs. Plus, I had constant cravings for sugar, carbs, salty snacks and junk foods.
After the babies were born I had recovery issues as well. My body did not heal fast after a C-Section. Besides having constipation issues, I still had that familiar exhaustion that simply would not let up. My babies had challenges also. If not for family and friendï¿½s help, I donï¿½t know what I would have done, as I was too exhausted to care for my own family.
Thankfully, while I was recuperating, a friend introduced me to Shaklee products. The first product I used was Vitalizerï¿½ Women to help give me the energy to get back on my feet and back to mommy duty. It worked! I then moved on to all the Get Cleanï¿½ household products to create a healthier non-toxic environment for my entire family. My childrenï¿½s health was a growing concern also. Enter Shaklee kidï¿½s products! My childrenï¿½s health improved, andï¿½I also found out I was pregnant again!
This pregnancy I chose Shaklee Vitalizerï¿½ Women for my prenatal program, and am I glad I did. It turns out my worries were for naught as my third pregnancy was a breeze! I had boundless energy, , and no need for afternoon naps! Best of all was our Shaklee Baby: a 7 pound, 15-ounce, healthy bouncing baby boy named Porter. My post-delivery time was great also thanks to Vitalizerï¿½ Women, Physiqueï¿½, Herb-Laxï¿½, extra OmegaGuardï¿½, Vita C and E .
Thank you for changing our lives Shaklee. All prenatal vitamins are not created equal and I am living proof!
