A baby shower is often overlooked as a special occasion that gives the chance to celebrate what will be a momentous and life changing event for the soon-to-be mom. Getting to enjoy that moment and commemorate it with family and friends is a big part of the pregnancy process and one future moms will want to really revel in. As the name ‘Baby Shower’ comes from the showering of love and attention to the future mom, and with that comes gifts and cards, you may be required to write on a card or in person give baby shower wishes to the mom.
If you are sending a card, or a gift with a card, then you will want to write a message or sentiment inside, maybe congratulating or just wishing them well. But the correct words aren’t always easy to come by. If you’re worried about what to say or are struggling then follow this guide to writing the perfect baby shower wishes and messages. You’ll find a quick rundown of how to write your own message or wishes as well as a whole host of example messages for different circumstances and relationships.

If you prefer to write your own baby shower card instead of using a pre written example (see below for those) then there are some ideas you can follow to make sure you get the perfect and most fitting message.
However you can use the pre written examples below and copy them directly into your card if you prefer.
These are a selection of messages and wishes that are perfect for a card. You can edit and change them so they fit your own situation, adding in names where appropriate, or just use them exactly as they are.
A quote can be the perfect way to wish a mom-to-be congratulations. Famous quotations said by well known names can help if you’re struggling with what to say, and are often more profound or touching than anything you could think up yourself.
If the mom-to-be is religious then you can make your message reflect this. However if the family isn’t or you’re unsure how they might react to a religious wish then steer clear. You don’t want to end up offending them over something like this.
You can actually address the card to the baby itself. This can be touching and sweet, as well as a nice memento for both parents and the baby to look back on when they are grown up.
You can include a joke or funny message if you feel it’s appropriate. Putting a smile on the moms face during a happy but stressful time could be just what she needs!
We hope the examples provided here will help you choose the perfect words to say to an expectant mom. Remember to be upbeat, positive and congratulate her in your baby shower wishes. Above all – speak from the heart.
