A friend of mine has told me they are not halachically obligated and yet I can not see any mention of this in the Shulchan Aruch. Please show מקורות.

There were exemptions for "pregnant, nursing, and shortly-after-birth." It seems in some communities women were in one of these categories so often that people just gathered that they were exempt altogether.
