Prepare to Share

Who do you want to know when baby is coming or has been born? It's a good idea to plan ahead and coordinate the best means to announce your big news.

  • Make sure you have a phone list. It will help keep you from fumbling for phone numbers when you're ready to call people with the news that baby is coming or has been born. Place the family and friends you want to inform first at the top of the list.
  • Consider a phone tree that delegates calls to parents or family members who, in turn, will call the others. Similarly, asking a close friend to make calls to your other friends will expedite the calling process.
  • Twitter, Facebook or email may be the fastest means to spread the word, and you can do that from your room.
