2. Do NOT Try to Touch the Belly without Permission

I do not know what makes people think it’s ok to touch the belly of a pregnant woman unless she asks you to.

Offer congratulations, talk about the pregnancy but keep your hands to yourself unless mom asks you if you’d like to feel the baby move.
