We had a chat with Meaghan O'Connell about her new memoir And Now We Have Everything: On Motherhood Before I Was Ready. Meaghan discusses the romanticized expectations surrounding birth and early motherhood, the process of she coming to terms with the reality of her own birth experience, and how her feminism interacts with her new life as a mom.
And Now We Have Everything is out now from Little, Brown! Find using the link below or wherever books are sold!
Meaghan O'Connell's writing has appeared in New YorkMagazine, Longreads, and The Billfold, where she was an editor. She lives in Portland, OR, with her husband and young son.
Music Composed and Recorded by Isaac and Sarah Greene
