Perinatal depression had been a part of my life for years and years. I had depression  throughout five pregnancies (almost four years of increasingly worse symptoms) and postpartum depression following the birth of our sixth child for an entire year. I tried everything I could to soothe these horribly dark days. I felt too guilty and fearful to take medication while pregnant, but I tried exercise, healthy eating, increased sleep. All these efforts helped minimally, but suicidal thoughts still churned through my brain most days. It was unbearable. 

When we found out we were pregnant with our sixth, I was petrified...petrified enough to take a leap of faith and try something I was both annoyed by hearing about and could barely afford: 


I was almost completely free of depression with that pregnancy, and that is saying a lot considering we live in a small Cambodian village with our big family. I survived a home visit to the US with six kids where we drove from Alabama to California and back stopping place after place in between. I had my baby's birth hijacked by an impatient doctor, then went home to face one of the toughest years of my life.

The depression has not returned. 

Each time I marvel at how I am enjoying my son, I thank God for giving me the means to live fully. Each day that passes that I want to live, I praise God that someone reached out to me with this product that has given me a chance to love my children well.
