Announce Your New Family Member's Arrival with Stylish Pregnancy Announcements
The birth of a new child is always exciting, but there's no need to wait until the baby
arrives to start celebrating. Send a pregnancy announcement to get everyone ready for the
big day months in advance.
What Goes on a Pregnancy Announcement
What to put on your pregnancy announcements depends on how much you know. Typically,
the date the baby is expected to arrive is the main piece of information noted. It's a
good idea to say the child will arrive "around" the date, since new children do not look
at calendars and may come a few days before or after the expected time.
If you know the gender of the new arrival, you can include that info as well. Finally,
the names of both parents should be included. Use your first names or you can go with the
first and last if you want to be a bit more formal.
The Tone of the Announcement
Typically, the tone of a pregnancy announcement is lighthearted or even humorous. This
imparts a happy and celebratory tone without the formality that is associated with an
invitation or similar communication.
You want to let people know that you're expecting and happy about it but without the
implications that you expect anything of the recipients at this point. Of course, sending
out these announcements primes people for the invitations that might later, but for now,
keep things light and airy.
Even though the father gets mentioned on the card, pregnancy announcements are all about
the mother and the upcoming child. Therefore, feminine fonts are popular. Pastel backgrounds
are also favorites. If this isn't your style, don't fret. You can always go with something
more neutral. Our design module lets you craft a personal message that suites your style.
