A book for women who happen to be parents

 

House Dublin was packed with family, friends and supporters of Maia Dunphy last night (Tuesday October 17) for the launch of her first book The M Word. Familiar faces in the crowd included Maia’s husband the comedian Johnny Vegas, Aengus Mac Grianna, Nora Casey and Yvonne Connolly. On launching the book Yvonne said ’The M Word is a book of reassurance, it makes you laugh and feel that everyone is in the same boat’. Check out the photos from the launch over on our Facebook page.

 

Blogger and TV presenter Maia Dunphy is much-loved by women everywhere for her girl-next-door relatability and a non-judgmental curiosity, which brilliantly explores how we live now. As a new mum, her focus has shifted to the pressures of modern motherhood and in her first book she shares her experiences of dealing with unwanted advice, sleep deprivation, competitive parenting and dirty nappies.

 

Inspired by the blog of the same name, The M Word provides an antidote to the constant judgement that being a mother brings. Covering everyday trivialities, traumas and even occasional moments of parenting bliss, this hilarious and brilliantly observed look at what being a mum entails provides a dose of light relief for mothers everywhere who are fed up with the pressure to do it all whilst running on two hours’ sleep and wearing baby-puke-covered clothes. Read this and relax, you’re doing fine!

 

Keep up to date with Maia on her website, Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. You can buy the book online on our website, Eason, Dubray, Amazon and in all good bookshops nationwide.
