Expectant moms might find themselves in a unique place this weekend; Mother’s Day during pregnancy is a sort of gray area. So Huggies took it upon themselves to find a way to commemorate this precious time just before motherhood.

In a new campaign for their Little Snugglers Diapers, Huggies released a video of pregnant women reading letters to their unborn babies, putting into words both the connection they feel with their children and how excited they are to finally meet them.

“It’s amazing that a love like this can exist between two humans who have never even met,” one woman reads.

“You’re the only one who knows the sounds of my heart from the inside,” says another.

But the kicker might come from a dad:

“I plan for your mother to feel like the luckiest woman on earth.”

Moms have been debating whether or not to celebrate Mother’s Day during pregnancy for years on our community boards. While there’s no clear consensus, you certainly have our blessing. Here’s five prenatal spa treatments to book now.
