Announcing Your Pregnancy


Breaking the news of your pregnancy requires thought and planning. Here are some general guidelines and tips to help you through it.

When a woman finds out that she is pregnant it becomes difficult to think of something else. This results in the woman being anxious to announce the exciting news with other people especially the partner. There has been a lot of controversy on the best time to make an announcement about pregnancy.

It is important to choose how and when to make the announcement of a pregnancy.

If one shares the news early, the main advantage is that there will be a lot of support from family and friends. However, the downside is that there might be a bit of explanation to be done in case of miscarriage. This might add to the emotional distress for the mother.

You may choose to make the announcement in a way that is both creative and memorable – plan a surprise dinner or a party and invite close family and friends! Never a better way to celebrate than to see the outburst of joy on their faces (:

Always speak to your partner – It is best to discuss as a couple on when and how to make the important announcement after weighing the costs and benefits.

All the best! You got this!
