After the Covid pandemic saw people spending a lot more quality time together, you might have noticed a lot more pregnancy announcements across your social media feed.
Look at Little Mix; 2/3 of the band delivered babies just days apart from each other.
Whether people had been planning to start a family (or add to it) or just a happy accident from months of lockdown, a baby is always cause for celebration.
If your friends are starting to have children or you’re just running out of creative ways to congratulate the new parent/s, here are some heartfelt and humorous ways to pass on your best wishes.
What to write for a baby shower card
A rule of thumb is to always try and make it personal. If they know the assigned sex of the baby, make reference to their ‘new son’ or ‘new daughter’ along with any of the following messages.
Also, if they have children already, it’s always a nice personal touch to include them in any greetings.
