Meet Angela. The Woman Behind Mommy Diary
I created this blog in 2014 as a place of rest and reflection after overcoming postpartum depression and dealing with the weight of raising a special needs child. At the time I was lonely, depleted and desperately in need of connection, especially that with other women.
Even though my blog is now full of mothering inspirations and relatable stories, I don’t want to forget where my journey began. Instead of pushing aside the mother who was once lonely and lost in motherhood, I want to celebrate her strength and courage to overcome this very real and debilitating disease called postpartum depression. And I want to inspire others to do the same. You can read a snippet of my story here.
If there’s one thing I learned through motherhood, it’s that we are intricately connected in our deep love for our children as well as our struggles and worries. I also learned that the heavy burden of motherhood is lifted when we carry them together with our village of other women.
It truly takes a village to raise a child and motherhood is not meant to be lived in isolation.
In essence, this blog is the manifestation of such ideals.
