Shop Birth Announcements

Historically, the most famous birth announcement was that of the archangel Gabriel to the Virgin Mary, about the future baby Jesus. Nowadays however, a baby announcement or birth announcement refers to a notice habitually sent to friends and family by the parents of a newborn baby within the first year of the birth with the main objective of alerting friends and family to the birth of the baby. A baby announcement will usually include at least some or all of the following information: the baby’s name, one or more pictures of the baby, the baby’s birth date and time, the baby’s birth weight and height, the location of the baby’s birth, the names of the baby’s parents and other family members, an expression of gratitude by the parents for the arrival of the baby and an invitation to attend a baby shower for the mother of the baby.
