Preparing for Baby: Keeping Family Informed of Babys Arrival
Don't want to be so public about your baby's arrival? You can set up a Family group on your cell phone to share the good news via text message. Set up separate groups for close friends, neighbors, co-workers, etc., so you can filter news accordingly and in appropriate order. Or create a birth announcement you can email out in bulk when the baby is born. All you'll (or hubby, really, because you'll be too busy) have to do is plug in the baby's name, vitals and a photo.
There are also services you can sign up for while you're preparing for baby that allow you to share information, photos, video and more with a select group of people. You'll have to invite family and friends to register or sign the guest book in order to have access to the information.
