Birth Announcements-Sharing the Excitement

By Dawn Rowlett

Preparing for a baby is a very busy time. You want to let everyone know how excited you are about your new addition. There are lots of questions when it comes to birth announcements. For a first time parent, with so much already on the plate, birth announcements can fall by the wayside, but they need not. Ordering and sending birth announcements are now easier than ever.

Boy or Girl birth announcement. The first task is to choose which birth announcement design will be used. If the sex of the baby is known, choose a gender appropriate style. Shades of blue work well for boys, and pink hues are perfect for baby girls. If the sex of the baby is not known, there are many non-gender specific styles to choose from. In either case, the parents should choose a style that reflects their relationship and their own unique style.

Many options are available for wording in birth announcements, just as in engagement announcements. Sometimes family situations are far from traditional and call for appropriate wording. Sometimes the grandparents want to be a part of the announcement. Who came blame them for wanting to be a big part of their first grandbaby's life?

When it comes to the list of the recipients, it is totally up to the parents. Announcements should be sent to immediate family and close friends who are a part of the parents life and who will be a part of the new baby's life. Parents may also choose to send birth announcements to colleagues and out-of-town family as well.

When to send the birth announcements can be a delicate issue. They should be sent immediately following the birth. However, for some new parents with all the other things that must be done, sending birth announcements can get put off. As long as the announcements are sent within a few weeks of the birth, it will be fine. People are very understanding of all the things new parents must do.

Sending birth announcements is a great way to show appreciation and respect to everyone who has helped the couple to become a family. It is a way to be creative and show how the relationship has grown or changed since marriage. And it is also a great way to let friends and family know how important they are to the parents, and how important they will be in the life of the new baby.
