'You will lose pretty much all of your friends'

"One day you'll wake up with back pain and then your back will literally never be the same again," Indy started her TikTok with.

"You'll lose your identity and yourself, but you'll find this new version of yourself that you never ever knew."


"The more kids you have, the less people check in and care about you. I know it's really sad and it doesn't make sense and it's weird," she said.

"You will lose pretty much all of your friends you had pre-kids if they don't have kids," she said. "You'll probably only keep one or two.They're just on a different pathway to you and they do not get it."

"They'll be like 'Why? Why can't you come to my birthday, I know you've got two kids and you're pregnant and you've got morning sickness but why?'" Indy elaborated.

"But you make amazing new friends and that is what life is about."

Her TikTok was flooded with comments from fans who really resonated with what she had to say.

"All these are 110% true," one person said.

"I’m 24 with two children the same age as Bambi and Navy, no one checks on me anymore," one person commented. "I lost so many friends! But they change everything for the better."

"You will have a life again. It flies by enjoy it," another said.

Some people offered a different perspective.

"As the friend who doesn’t have any kids yet we need to be checked in on too 🥺," they said. "My friends with kids only ever talk about them and never ask me anything."

"I’m the only friend without kids and have lost touch with everyone NOT by choice – I want to relate but don’t know how since I recognise I have no clue," another said. "Being almost 35 and childless is a new kind of lonely."
