The Superstore actress admitted during her pregnancy that she was getting solid advice from her Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants costars — and fellow moms — Blake Lively, Alexis Bledel and Amber Tamblyn.

“They are a go-to for me, just one message away and I ask them a million questions. Everything from trying to wrap my mind around the actual birth to talking about what their experiences were and what to prepare for,” Ferrara exclusively told Us Weekly on April 18.  “I’m so lucky that I have so many amazing women around me. Having their support has been everything.”

She also noted that she’s traded in her intense workout for yoga.

“I have a lot of friends who are pregnant right now, which is really lucky for me because we take really long, slow pregnant lady walks,” the actress told Us. “We’ll just hike a little mountain and we’re done … I’m somebody who likes to do a lot, sometimes to my own detriment, and this has forced me to slow down in a really healthy, good way and really be kinder to myself and let this be a time when my body is doing something completely new and unique and letting it just do that.”
