About the Author

Ashe is a Melbourne-based author and family columnist for The Design Files. Her debut book began as a personal blog called Sad Pregnant Lady, which would become Sad Mum Lady. These days she's a mother of two, and a somewhat happier person.


'Funny and sad, wise and vulnerable: Ashe Davenport's memoir of motherhood rang truer for me than any other book on the subject, perhaps including my own.' Lauren Sams

'Hilarious and heartbreaking. Ashe Davenport captures the complexity of motherhood with astonishing humour, candour and humanity.' Georgie Dent

'Davenport's writing is glassy and sharp, capturing the painful heart of motherhood with eye-watering clarity. There are corners around which no one could reasonably expect a laugh to be lurking, but often that's where Davenport has found them. Sad Mum Lady is as sharp and painful as LEGO underfoot, but infinitely funnier.' Jessica Dettmann

'The essays in this collection are unashamed, affording the same candour to the realities of motherhood on both the flesh and the mind. Any resistance the reader might feel to reading about mucus plugs or maternal rage is dismantled by Davenport's natural humour.' The Age

'[Sad Mum Lady] is the opposite to the industry-generated manuals, shopping lists and official advice that can make new parents feel so helpless.' The Canberra Times
