31 Things Your Postpartum Friend Needs You To Text Them

"Hey, girl! How's the vajayjay?"

What’s the first thing that comes to mind after you hear that one of your friends has given birth to their first baby? That. Whatever that thing is, would you send it in a text? Well, girlfriends need each other, and now is no different.

You might not remember how soon you looked at your phone after delivering, but when you reached for it, it’s nice to know your people are there to speak to your soul. And once you’ve been down the road of having a baby, you can stuff a few diaper bags with your wisdom and experience.

So, if your friend is nervous about motherhood, a firm you got this or a motivational quote might ease her. If her family and in-laws are overbearing, maybe she needs to know that you’re waiting downstairs with the escape vehicle running. Either way, your girl knows that you’ve got her back and will be there for her and the new family that she’s birthed. In case you need some ideas, here are a few texts for your friend who had their first baby.
