While there are no strict rules about who NOT to send announcements to, there are a few guidelines related to individuals you absolutely must inform. This includes the baby’s grandparents, close family friends and far away family members.

What – A standard birth announcement contains the first picture of your newborn baby, his height and weight details and his new name! You can feel free to include a heartfelt note, poem, fairytale, story or any other information that you wish.
