Firstly, huge congratulations your newborn baby is here and no doubt your loved ones are waiting to hear all the details. Was their gender prediction correct, did you picked a name from your family.

Who should I send the birth announcements to?

In the past traditionally parents of new babies sent a printed birth announcement to their closest family, friends and those who attended the baby shower. Today many parents are opting for a less formal approach and send birth announcements to wider group of people these include neighbours and colleagues. Whilst others maybe prefer to announcing the arrival of the new addition through social media and may still send printed announcements as a keep sake to close family. However, you choose to announce the arrival of your newborn is completely up to you and you need to feel comfortable in what suits your family.

When should I send the birth announcement?

Today many new parents of newborn babies feel a lot of pressure to announce the birth of their son or daughter immediately, this would not be the case. Conventional etiquette suggests that baby’s announcements be sent within 6 months of their birth, giving parents plenty of time to settle in with their precious new bundle. If you prefer you may feel the need to send your birth announcement soon after the birth. If this is the case, we suggest you have a design and template ready to be printed and you just need to the necessary details.

What details should be included in a birth announcement?

More conventional birth announcements usually lead with the parents’ names, followed by baby’s full name, birth date, weight, length, and sometimes the child’s sex and birth place. Most parents today adapt this traditional style to fit their own personalities and lifestyles, including names of proud big siblings and even beloved household pets. Design your birth announcements in any way you like, adding only the details you feel comfortable including. There are many options available online to help you create your birth announcement including a free site called Canva, easy to use can you can download your birth announcement ready for social media posting or professional printing.

Should I include photos with the birth announcement?

Sending photos with your announcement is completely optional. Some parents like to wait to send out formal announcements, so they can include plenty of professional photos, while others prefer to send one casual snapshot, or nothing at all. A classic first photo often depicts baby sleeping snug in wrap.

Birth announcement wording ideas

As with any message, it’s important to make sure it’s appropriate for your audience, so be sure to consider the friends and family who’ll be receiving your birth announcement.
