Where it all began: Behind The Sizzlin and Livin Mamma's journey

Updated: Jan 16, 2018


On my home page I introduced myself as Domenica. you might be wondering why "The Sizzlin and Livin Mamma" well a few years back I began my blogging journey as "Sizzlin and Livin" because well there was always something sizzlin around here (never a dull moment!) and NOW I'm a Mamma, so it fits perfectly. However, once I became a mother the sizzling stopped and I fell into a deep dark hole...

After becoming a first-time Mother I immediately began experiencing Post-Partum Depression (PPD). I had a blurred vision of Motherhood. I was feeling all the usual emotions that first-time Mother's face, baby blues etc however short dark moments seemed to last and linger for days. I began therapy during the first week of my daughter's life. I was proactive; I sought out help and was on my road to recovery. As the months passed, I continued my therapy but began to notice the stigma around PPD and that’s when the loneliness set in. It was a dark time and I felt my world spiral right in front of me. This drove me to share my story with the world. It was imperative for me to connect with other Mothers that were facing the same emotions as myself for my own sanity. I began talking and sharing my story on my blog and all my social media accounts. On a positive note the feedback I had received was uplifting and supportive, however the sad truth was that many women were suffering in silence. I began to create change and illustrate to women to empower and unite as one to end the stigma around maternal mental health. A small community had formed one that I had built from the ground up and I am forever grateful to each and every woman that has supported me in this journey.
