Summary from Goodreads:

The real talk you want about pregnancy, birth, body image, and the newborn days from Meghan Trainor, the chart-topping singer-songwriter behind "All About That Bass" and "Dear Future Husband," and, more importantly, Riley's mom. Meghan Trainor has wanted to be a mom since before she even knew how babies were made. From the moment she discovered she was pregnant with her first child--her son, Riley--she was fascinated by the entire experience. Yes, pregnancy and motherhood are miracles--but even a miracle can freak you out sometimes. Everyone has an opinion on what an expectant mother should feel, think, or do during her pregnancy, and it's hard not to feel overwhelmed with app notifications, well-meaning questions, and unsolicited advice that comes from friends, family, and perfect strangers. Dear Future Mama is a heartfelt and humorous guide for expectant mamas inspired by Meghan's own journey into motherhood and expert insights from Meghan's own personal trainer, registered dietitian, husband, and ob-gyn. No shame, no judgment--just straight talk (and laughs) from a bestie who's been there, including Dear Future Mama offers future mamas a place to relax, laugh out loud, and get the pep talk they need to know that they are absolutely not alone.


Add on Goodreads



This book feels like it has a specific targeted audience and I am not one of them. If you are a young mother or soon to be mother, then this would be a great read for you, but it has been 10 years since I've given birth and much has changed since then.

The book was cowritten by Meghan Trainor and her husband Daryl Sabara. Although some of the stories were cute and/or funny, to me, the anecdotes from Daryl could have been left out. I didn't want to feel like Daryl was a tag alone, but that's just what they did.

I gave this book 3 out of 5 stars. While some things were relatable, I couldn't connect with the writing.
