Early Praise for Day Nine

"An intimate and honest portrait of a family’s journey through postpartum depression. This book will be a godsend to any mother who finds herself stuck in a swamp of anxiety and self-doubt and who is struggling to find her way out."

- Ann Douglas, author, The Mother of All Pregnancy Books 

“In some ways, Day Nine is a very personal story, but in so many other ways it’s a story of what happens when life— particularly motherhood— don’t go according to plan. I found in these pages the same thing that has always kept me going as a founder and a mother: the innate resilience of women and mothers born out of the power of all-consuming ferocious love. Day Nine is at times messy and horrifying, but it’s also a beautiful and inspiring ode to the power that’s found within our weakest moments”

- Sarah Lacy, Founder and CEO ChairmanMom, Author of A Uterus is a Feature Not a Bug
