How many times have you found yourself in a pregnancy or motherhood situation so intense that not one emoji could properly depict your mood? Those days are over, thanks to the new app EmojiMom.
EmojiMom features 250+ emojis created just for moms that perfectly depict the struggles, triumphs and laughs of motherhood. From pumping breastmilk in public restrooms to baby peeing everywhere, you’ll be hard up to find a part of motherhood or pregnancy not represented by these adorable illustrations.
Sarah Robinson, who co-founded the app with friends Hannah Hudson and Natalie Ralston, says the idea for the app (which you can download here) was conceived during a text conversation among the three friends during a particularly stressful morning with her infant son.
“I was getting ready for work — one of my first days back from maternity leave — and my baby peed all over my work outfit,” Robinson said. “It was such a hilarious, frustrating, OK-I-might-break-down-and-cry kind of moment that I texted Hannah and Natalie about it and we all said, ‘Seriously, there ought to be an emoji to describe this feeling.'”
Emojis you’ll see? Definitely the standard mom smiling with baby, but also leaking moms who just don’t care, the C-section scar, and even the mesh post-pregnancy panties (remember those?).
