A Peek Behind the Curtain

Angela & Bogdan’s Journey to sanoMidLife

Angela’s journey into early menopause at 36 was a turning point. A vibrant and independent woman, she found her life severely disrupted by intense night sweats, requiring an intricate nightly routine with towels, and irregular periods that threw her life off balance. These challenges were magnified in her professional sphere, where she struggled to maintain her usual standards. Unfortunately, Angela’s experience reflects a broader issue, as she became one of the 1 in 10 women who are compelled to leave the workforce due to the severity of menopausal symptoms. This departure marked a significant turning point, highlighting the profound impact of menopause on women’s professional lives.

Amidst these struggles, Bogdan became a beacon of support. Determined to help his wife, he immersed himself in learning about menopause, from understanding female hormones to exploring wellness and hormonal therapy options. His dedication to understanding and supporting Angela was instrumental in her journey to regain control over her life.

This shared experience of battling menopause’s impact on personal and professional fronts led Angela and Bogdan to establish sanoMidLife, the first product offering from parent company sanoLiving. Their vision was to create a sanctuary where women could receive not only medical care, but also the understanding and support they need during menopause. sanoMidLife, stands as a testament to their journey, embodying their commitment to ensuring no woman or family faces menopause alone. Angela’s resilience in overcoming professional and personal hurdles, together with Bogdan’s empathetic support, form the cornerstone of sanoMidLife, dedication to empowering and providing comprehensive care for women navigating this critical phase of life.
