Never say never – De Wet family

Shiree & Hilgard met each other at the tender age of 9. They were the typical movie moment, boy meets girl down the street, riding their bicycles, best friends duo. At 13, they shared their first kiss (no surprizes here) … and remained best friends (surprize).

The duo grew closer as time passed, and when they were old and wise enough to make some serious decisions, they decided that they were meant to be together for the long haul. A good move, because they knew each other’s deepest, darkest secrets.
IMAGINE, marrying your childhood best friend?

Rogue was born just before our country was hit by the level 5 Lockdown. She is an absolute miracle baby, as Shiree was told that she would never have the privilege to be a mom due to endometriosis. Their story is one of hope and destiny – never-say-never!

The couple still calls their childhood hometown home. They love their small community in Pniel, close to Franschhoek in the Western Cape, and are excited to be raising their beautiful daughter Rogue in Pniel too… A happy, special family indeed.

The Epi-max team spent the evening of 22 September sharing valuable information with our group of baby mommies. The online session was filled with scientific snippets and practical pointers that helped the mom’s understand the benefits and uses of the range of Epi-max products better. Thank you to Salmari Fourie and her team, for the insights shared and valuable BABY TALK provided!
