And Now We Have Everything: On Motherhood Before I Was Ready

Meaghan O'Connell

Write Review

Rated 0

Autobiography: general, Advice on parenting

Operating Instructions for the Millennial set: a fiercely honest account of becoming a mother before you're "ready."

If you feel totally alienated by the cutesy, sanctimonious tone of the "motherhood industrial complex," this is the book for you.

After getting accidentally pregnant in her twenties, Meaghan O'Connell realized that brutally honest, agenda-less resources on the emotional and existential impact of motherhood were nowhere to be found. In And Now We Have Everything, she offers a brave new perspective on the transition into motherhood. With her dark humor and a hair-trigger B.S. detector, Meaghan addresses the pervasive imposter syndrome that comes with unplanned pregnancy, the second adolescence of a changing postpartum body, the myth that giving birth is a "magical" experience, the problem of sex post-baby, the strange push to make 'mom friends', and the fascinating weirdness of stepping into a new, not-yet-comfortable identity.

Addressing the fears and anxieties of Millennial women in an unflinchingly frank, funny, and visceral way, Meaghan fills a void in the discussion on motherhood, identity, what it means to be ready.
