Jennifer’s Story: Managing Perimenopause Anxiety & Depression

In this episode we meet Jennifer. Her powerful story about experiencing joint pain, mood swings, and depression will directly connect you to the emotional and physical struggles that perimenopause symptoms create in a woman’s life. In Jennifer’s case these brutal symptoms have left her fighting suicidal thoughts and deep anxiety.

Jennifer’s story is not uncommon, and the courage she has shown publicly sharing her story will, if nothing else, let other women impacted by severe symptoms know they are not alone. Jennifer’s video will also give you hope.

Despite all the hardships, she shares how she has coped, what she has done to keep her marriage sound, and how she has turned this time of turmoil into a means of giving back by starting a company focused on women’s health.

PROJECT' is a labor of love that I hope will bring comfort to all the women out there who feel isolated by the experiences they’re going through. It's not easy being vulnerable on camera – but brave individuals have made it happen so we can all benefit from learning more! I'm truly honoured to work with such strong women. I would love to hear from you! Do you have any suggestions for improvement? Do you want to tell your own story? Get in touch by emailing me:
