Moms Create Emojis That Are Designed For Motherhood

Eventually, all forms of human communication will be replaced by emojis. But until that day they’re just really really popular. Companies are constantly adding new emojis to smartphone keyboards, and there are hundreds of hundreds of options to help you say what you want to say.

But for three moms, existing emojis didn’t quite cover an important area of life: having children. So they decided to launch EmojiMom, a smartphone app that adds 250 parenting-themed emojis to your smartphone.

Sarah Robinson, Hannah Hudson, and Natalie Ralston all have kids and all love to text. Robins0n got the idea for EmojiMom when she was dealing with a familiar parenting situation: getting peed on.

“One day, I was getting ready for work ― one of my first days back after maternity leave ― and my baby peed all over my work outfit,” she told The Huffington Post. “It was such a hilarious, frustrating, it-figures, okay-I-might-break-down-and-cry kind of moment. I texted Hannah and Natalie about it (as I did constantly in the early days of motherhood), and we all said, ‘Seriously, there ought to be an emoji for this feeling!’”

Once they got started, they had no shortage of ideas. In fact, the hardest part was limiting themselves to just 250 emojis. Their emojis cover all aspects of pregnancy and motherhood experience, from avoiding raw fish to tough deliveries to taking your baby on an airplane:

They also demonstrated their emojis in action. Here’s what to say if someone texts you while you’re in labor:

Or you can describe your appointment with the OB/GYN:
