Do you have exciting pregnancy news to share but you’re not quite sure how to tell people? Sharing in person can be tough right now for so many reasons, but there are still tons of cute ways to tell your loved ones you’re having a baby even if you can’t physically be with them. Take these ideas, make them your own, and most importantly, have a blast sharing this amazing, life-changing news with your friends and family!
Send a gift that contains the ultrasound photo
This is perhaps the simplest way of revealing that a new baby is on the way, but nothing says pregnancy announcement quite as clearly as an ultrasound photo. Tuck one into gift-wrapped boxes with a sweet onesie or a pair of booties and send them off to the important people in your life.
Record a song
If you are a talented musician, love music, or just like the idea of singing your special news, this is an unforgettable way to announce your pregnancy and it’s certainly one of the most creative! Grab a cellphone, record your announcement song (make it as sentimental or as silly as you want!), and send it off to loved ones. Put your heart and soul into it and it will be a hit.
Write a letter or a poem
You can never go wrong with a handwritten letter or poem. Take the time to make each letter personal for the recipient. Whether you choose to write a sentimental letter or opt for a cute rhyming poem, what will set this announcement apart from the rest is the thought you put into it.
Create a promotion certificate
Let your loved ones know they’re being promoted to grandparent, godparent, aunt, uncle, etc. by making each one a promotion certificate! Make it extra official by framing it and even printing a matching shirt to go with it.
Stage an eviction notice photoshoot
This idea is for those who are already parents: Place your first youngster in the crib and post an eviction notice on the front, indicating that a new tenant is moving in! Take photos to send to your friends and family - they will get a kick out of your little one and be over the moon to hear that another is on the way.
Create a group chat guessing game
Take a cue from the game 4 Pics 1 Word and create your own guessing game for your loved ones! Create a collage of four baby-related photos with a correlating word and start a group chat with everyone you want to tell. Send the collage and blank word (ex. “_ _ _ _” for “baby”) to the group and see who can solve the puzzle first. The more challenging you make the game, the more fun it will be!
Simply video call them - but record it!
Not a fan of anything too involved? You can always just video call your loved ones, but we highly recommend recording these conversations. Make a video montage of everyone’s reactions so you can relive those precious moments over and over again.
Happy news is something that the world needs a bit more of these days, so for all expecting parents out there, a huge congratulations! We’d love to hear all about how you announced your pregnancy to the important people in your life. Share with us!
