Express Your Congratulations
Whether you’re an old hat at diaper-changing or you’ve never even held an infant, always make certain to offer congratulations and best wishes to the mother-to-be. It’s an exciting time; she’s growing a human after all. And a new life is something to celebrate.

What you can say:

  • Many congratulations on your new bundle of joy.
  • Best wishes for a lifetime of happiness.
  • May your new child bring you a lifetime of blessings.
  • Congratulations and well wishes on new beginnings.

Send Wishes of Health
Boy or girl, the only thing anyone really wants is a healthy pregnancy, delivery, and a healthy baby and mother. Think uplifting, encouraging, and sincere when writing.

What you can say:

  • Wishing you an easy, safe delivery and a healthy baby.
  • Here’s hoping you get your epidural on time!
  • Welcoming your new baby with wishes of health, joy and plenty of sleep.

Acknowledge Both Parents and the Child
Personalize the card. Acknowledge the tremendous change that’s about to occur. If you know the baby’s gender and/or name, use those in the card to add a personal touch, so the parents know you’re interested. You might also include the parents’ hobbies in the card.

What you can say:

  • I can’t wait to watch your beautiful daughter, Amelia, as she grows.
  • We are so excited that you and Matt are welcoming a new member into your family.
  • In a few months, your son Jacob will be the newest member of your family football team!

Make an Offer or Dispense Advice
If you’re close to the card recipient or recipients, offer to pitch in or bring a meal—a small gesture to help ease the transition of a new baby. If you’re a coworker or the friend of a friend, dispense a piece of maternal advice or go with a quote—something warm and honest is always appreciated.

What you can say:

  • Try to refrain from Googling everything, and rest when the baby sleeps!
  • If you have any questions about nursing or delivering, feel free to reach out to me. I’ve been there.
  • I’d like to bring a meal when it’s convenient for you. I’ll follow up with you after you’re home from the hospital.
  • If you need me to babysit your other child, please call anytime.
