I slept through my first labour. I'm fine.

Hobsons Bay Libraries

Event Date: 2 April 2019
Author / Presenters: Megan Blandford

I slept through my first labour.

With her career down the toilet, a husband who was never home, a baby screaming non-stop and her cries for help falling on deaf ears, Megan Blandford spent years saying, “I’m fine”.

Spoiler alert (not really): she wasn’t fine.

I’m Fine (and other lies) is a touching true story of motherhood: the challenges it presents, and the hope that can be found within it.

“Motherhood is hard. Read this book. It will help.” - Caroline Overington, author and journalist

“It is an intensely personal and heartfelt story of one woman's journey through depression to find herself ... I hope this helps other women free themselves of their own negative internal voice long enough to get help.” - Anne Buist, psychiatrist and author

"Megan Blandford has penned a raw and visceral account of living with depression, told with powerful honesty and beautifully crafted words that will linger long after you turn the final page." - Valerie Khoo, CEO, Australian Writers’ Centre
