Hear Ye! Hear Ye! A Baby Is Born!

A baby is the greatest gift a mother could ever receive.  When we moms give birth, we naturally want everyone to know how blessed we are and to share how adorable our new bundle of joy looks.  How do we do this?  Well, there are many different ways to announce the birth of a new baby.  Here are just some ideas you may want to consider: 

Be Techie.  Take advantage of modern technology and spread the news of your baby’s birth through various social media networks.  A picture of the baby posted on your Facebook wall can be shared easily with other relatives and friends.  A simple tweet about the birth of your baby can be read by all your followers on Twitter.  In these two networks alone, you’d have most of your family and friends informed already within hours after giving birth.  Another fairly quick way to spread the news is to send text messages.  Immediate family members and close friends warrant a phone call though.  Lastly, you can email a message containing pictures of the baby and his birth details.
 
Go Traditional.
Technology does make announcing a baby’s birth faster and easier. However, traditional ways of announcement make the occasion more meaningful. Before the advent of the internet, announcement of birth was done by posting on the local newspaper and by sending birth announcement cards through postal service.  Though it sometimes takes forever to reach the recipients’ homes, birth announcement cards are more personal and can be kept as keepsakes. 

 Handmade ones will certainly be much appreciated because of the time and effort exerted in making them.  Then again, newborns do require plenty of love and attention so it may be more prudent to opt for printed birth announcement cards.  You can still add that personal touch and showcase your creative flair by being the one to choose the template and design for the cards.

You don’t actually have to choose just one method of birth announcement.  You may take advantage of technology to spread the news fast, then send traditional birth announcement cards for a more intimate message.

  3. My baby was born 4 months ago and due to the technology nowadays all my family was able to see his first photo since his father posted it online (on facebook) so I had time to send his birth announcement ( i took my time since everyone had already seen him) 🙂 so it was very convenient for me.

    I love these ideas for shouting out to your personal bubble (group of family and friends) hey everyone here is my adorable baby! Babies are such a blessing and I really like the idea of making phone calls to all your close friends and family because when I have kids they will be at the hospital with me. Anyone else will see pictures either through text message or facebook pictures. Thanks for the post! 🙂
