Is it intrusive to call a brand-new mom to make sure she got the flowers I sent?

I don’t think I would say anything other than maybe “Congrats!” or something via text. If she just had the baby yesterday, it’s a safe bet that flowers and balloons are very low on her priority list right now, although a nice gesture on your part!

I’d wait a day or two. I don’t think she will feel any less loved if she didn’t get them right away, and that extra space may be just what she needs. I imagine her not getting back to you yet is just because of her hectic day, and not because the flowers have not been delivered. You’re an awesome friend to send them to her though, and I’m sure she will love it even if she’s a little too busy to say thanks right now!

HeartsandSparkles:  I wouldn’t if I were you! I sent friends of mine a gift and didn’t hear from them but it didn’t bother me as I know those initial stages with bubs are pretty crazy! Especially if it’s only been a day she’s probably barely looked at her phone between sleeping/recovering/feeding and generally just enjoying this very special time! I’m sure she/they will contact you once everything settles down.

I would not contact her. If you are concerned, contact the florist where you ordered from just to make sure

What she said — contact the florist if anything. Don’t breathe a word to her about it.
