30 Creative Pregnancy Announcement Ideas Your Family and Friends Will Love – Inspirationfeed

Last Updated on April 27, 2022

Congratulations, your family is now about to get bigger!

You and your partner are about to go over a huge milestone in life – adding a new member to your household. You’re probably so ecstatic, you’ll want to message everyone in your email list right away. In truth, there’s no real rule preventing you from doing so. Make the announcement whenever you feel comfortable to do so.

In the age of social media though, it can be a slippery slope when it comes to declaring such great news. It’s a good idea to be mindful of what we post online.

Here are a couple of tips to help you make the best choices:

When To Announce Pregnancy on Social Media

Odds are you found out you were pregnant together with your spouse. But if not, you can always surprise him! That will probably be your first pregnancy announcement.

According to Dr. David Garry, maternal-fetal medicine specialist, it’s good to wait until 14 weeks to make your news public. Some women choose to wait until 20 weeks as well. This is because the risk of miscarriage is high during the first trimester.

Of course, you’ll want to tell immediate family members (i.e. you and your partner’s parents) and maybe a few close friends sooner. Many couples do this so they can have people to lean on – should something happen. There are those who decide not to post anything online until birth, too.

Do’s and Don’ts for Announcing Pregnancy To Family

There’s an unspoken hierarchy when it comes to telling people you’re pregnant.

Obviously, your partner or spouse comes first (unless he knows already). Next are immediate family members. These include you and your spouse’s parents, any siblings, aunts, uncles, or even select cousins. Next are your close and most trusted friends. Last would be acquaintances or friends you haven’t talked to in a while.

It’ll be awkward (or even hurtful) if your family found out through the grapevine. It’s always great to deliver the news in person (whenever possible). A phone call or video chat works just as well, especially for long-distance families. For your best friends, a phone call or group message is acceptable.

At work, make sure to tell your boss first. Don’t feel pressured to tell everyone about your bundle of joy. Acquaintances can receive the news through word-of-mouth (because you’re not close anyway). If there are certain people you’d like out of the loop, mention this to your family and friends. Remember: it’s your pregnancy. You decide who gets to know and when.

How To Pick The Right Pregnancy Announcement

There’s no right or wrong way of doing it. Perhaps the only thing you need to consider is that some of your friends or co-workers on social media may still be trying. They will undoubtedly be super happy for you! Do keep them in your thoughts nonetheless.

For close family and friends, you can be as creative or as wild as you want. They’ll surely love your antics or unfiltered ideas. Still haven’t broken the news to your significant other? Then make it extra special with a good ol’ surprise! You can also just keep it casual or private (especially for folks who don’t like surprises).

Talk to your spouse or partner. Maybe they have a particular concept in mind. Pick a theme together! This can be exciting, particularly if you’re due around the holidays. For revealing gender, you can choose to say this separately or along with the pregnancy announcement. It’s totally up to you in the end.

Cute Pregnancy Announcement Ideas

It’s not every day you get to tell people that you’re expecting – so make the most of it. Social media announcements are just one of the numerous ways to do so. It’s the quickest method, too! But you can also say it through invitations or simply through word-of-mouth.
