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
Amanda Munday’s memoir Day Nine is a remarkable example of a new mother’s resilience. In vivid prose, Munday poignantly examines her experience with postpartum depression and other heartbreaking situations. She demonstrates how it’s possible to move through agony to create a fulfilling life. Nine Days is an inspiring account of perinatal mental illness, grief, joy, and recovery.
