10 Baby Birth Announcements That Are Undeniably Creepy

By  | 

Birth announcements are a great—albeit obvious—way to tell the world you gave birth. Since this isn’t the 1800s, the odds are that everyone and their mom already knows that you have a new bundle of joy after your grand Facebook announcement and play-by-play live tweeting. But an official birth announcement is a cute keepsake and will seal the deal.

You have birthed. You have made baby. You have produced a miracle that everyone must meet.

Birth announcements come in all shapes and sizes. Most that I have seen involve a wrinkly little newborn sleeping on a towel with an angelic glow cast about the photograph. I have to admit that I was very tempted to do a birth announcement after we had our kids, but I was very lazy. I also wanted to try a newborn photo shoot, but I never booked that either.

If I had done a birth announcement, there are several styles that I would have avoided. For starters, anything creepy is not advisable for a birth announcement that welcomes your new son or daughter into the world.

Use these weird examples as a guideline for what NOT to do, and you’ll be in the clear:

1. It took me a while to figure out what was going on because SUCH HANDS.
