Change is healthy, and friendships don’t have to stay the same to remain solid, Flores says. But once you have friends without kids, make sure your conversations don’t become all about the baby. After talking about your little one’s cute cooing noises, give your friend a chance to chime in about what’s going on with her. That’s not to say you can never talk about life as a new mom: Kids or no kids, your friends will be there for you. Plus, studies show that support from the people closest to you can help lower your risk for developing postpartum depression.
