Pregnancy is a joy of motherhood cherished by all mothers (and fathers). The experience of having another human being growing inside of her is a one of a kind thrill that every expectant mom can’t put to words. It fills her with joy with every kick she feels inside of her when her baby moves around. 

Even more exciting is when the baby is brought forth. Every year millions of new babies are born to happy mothers and their families. According to one survey seen on Statista, at least 3.75 million babies were born in 2019. That is at least 3.75 million happy families. That’s a lot of happy families if you ask us. And you want to celebrate that joy with them and tell them congratulations on having a baby.

And if you don’t know what to say to an expecting mother or how to congratulate a pregnant woman, then this is the article for you. We help you in this article with tips on how to congratulate on pregnancy.

Can there be more to say congratulations for being pregnant? The “more” comes with how you say it with words and/or actions. So, here are some helpful tips on how to congratulate a pregnant woman.

1. Find out in advance the gender of their baby if they are comfortable revealing this.

This helps you with knowing what type of gift to buy. For some, the gender of the baby influences the color of baby outfits they would buy for instance. It would seem that people would buy pink baby gifts if the gender of the baby is a girl, and blue or any other not so bright color if the gender of the baby is a boy. 

Knowing the gender of the baby will also help with any pregnancy card messages you want to write and decorating it beautifully with the right baby cartoons and pictures.

2. Buy them a sweet thoughtful pregnancy gift.

This can be anything from flowers, to cute baby clothes, or even comfortable flip flops they can work around in because we all know how feet swelling during pregnancy limits shoe choices for the pregnant woman.

3. Personalize their pregnancy gift.

The quickest way to personalize their pregnancy gift would be to buy a beautiful blank card to accompany your gift. In the card you get to write your personalized congratulations on expecting message to the new mommy to be. 

4. Take them out to a special treat and surprise them with your congrats you are pregnant gift. 

It is at this outing that you also pour out your heartfelt pregnancy congrats message to the new mommy to be. It can be lunch or dinner at her favorite lunch place or a new restaurant in town. Make it a colorful outing by coming with a few blown up baby-themed balloons. You can even buy her a tiara and new mommy to be sash for good measure.  

5. Or you can go all out with a surprise baby shower for the new mommy to be.

Depending on how close you are to the expecting mom, throwing her a surprise baby shower would be the highlight of the pregnancy for her.

Finally it is advisable to go all out with these celebratory congratulations ideas, especially the baby shower, at an advanced stage in her pregnancy. Practice seems to be to have the baby shower four to six weeks before her due date. 

Going all out with the pregnancy congratulations so close to the arrival of the baby has the advantage of creating heightened joy and excitement in anticipation of the newly born. It also gives the mommy to be an untold joy knowing that she is approaching the end of the pregnancy.
