Top 5 Pregnancy Journals

Hi. I’m Millie. The human behind Cosatto Social Media and Newsletter and currently growing my own Cosatto baby. When I first found out I was expecting my little bundle of joy I had all the good intentions of documenting my experiences. With so many pregnancy journals on the market I didn’t know which to choose or where to begin. I decided to BUY THEM ALL in a moment of hormonal madness. I’m guessing other mums feel this indecisive too so I thought I would make use of the journals by reviewing them. Here’s my top 5.


‘Expecting You – a keepsake pregnancy journal ‘

This journal is a thing a beauty… from it’s Yellow hardback cover to the positive affirmations dotted throughout, the design and longevity of this journal has been seriously thought about. The journal is based around parents feelings at each stage of pregnancy and beyond with open spaced pages for diary style writing. This is the perfect journal for someone who likes to keep a detailed diary. I loved the emotive language throughout the book,  although for me it was borderline soppy. 7/10 

‘Bump to Birthday – pregnancy & first year journal’

This pregnancy journal is both informative and reflective. The short spaces and prompt questions are great for mum’s and dad’s who want to document their experiences but are short on time. Aesthetically, Bump to Birthday isn’t the prettiest, however what it lacks in design it makes up for in content as this journal lasts beyond bump up until the baby’s first birthday. All in all a nice journal. 7/10 

‘My Bump & Me – pregnancy journal’

‘Record every moment of your pregnancy journey as you wait for your tiny little human to arrive. Creating a beautiful memento to treasure always’  The blurb of this Pregnancy journal had me hooked. Emotive without being sickly, this journey sparked excitement as I flicked through the pages. The journal, designed by Paperchase is not suprisingly a visual treat with colourful pages to keep it interesting. The downside to this journal is it’s size, as there’s only small spaces to write in your week by week feelings, so if you are someone who likes to write and write.. this journal isn’t for you. 8/10 

‘The First Time Mom’s Pregnancy Journal ‘

This pregnancy journal claims to be a first time mum’s must have to help guide you through your journey with writing prompts, checklists, activities and more and boy does it deliver what it states. The different activities throughout the book keep it fresh and interesting with just enough room for short paragraphs and photographs of your growing bump. I really liked this journal, every page felt different and I could see myself keeping up with writing in it. I feel the book would have benefited with a hardback cover as often journals are kept for years to come.  8/10 

‘How To Grow a Baby Journal – Clemmie Hooper’

And we have a winner… my thoughts when I saw this journal was ‘Ooh that cover pattern would make such a pretty cushion’. Design wise this journal is of the tree, with beautiful hard drawn illustrations throughout. The journal is the second release from Midwife Clemmie Hooper who also launched the ‘How to grow a baby and push it out guide’. The journal takes you from finding out you’re expecting a baby right through to coming home from hospital with your newborn. It’s super informative but also has just enough space for your input, thoughts and feelings too. A beautiful book to treasure forever. 9/10
