Announcing your pregnancy is a precious moment that deserves to be celebrated in an inspiring and adorable way. Choosing a way to tell the world about your pregnancy is a deeply personal decision, and there’s no right or wrong way to do it.

But to give you some inspiration, we’ve decided to share some heartwarming, fun, and creative baby announcement ideas. Let’s take a look at them right now.

Create a Slideshow

Making a pregnancy announcement through a heartfelt slideshow is a creative way that can suit anyone. In your video, you can tell the love story of your couple and add an ultrasound photo of your baby. You can complement the slides with a touching or upbeat music track, add cute pictures of baby shoes and home videos, quotes, etc. You can create a slideshow from scratch or use pre-designed pregnancy announcement templates if you’re pressed for time.

The good thing about this way is that you can use the slideshow in different ways: show it during a gathering on a big screen, post your video on social media, share the slideshow through a video call if they live far away, and more. You just need to pick a pregnancy announcement maker that offers the file format you need for sharing the video with others.

Add a Special Note to a Pregnancy Test

Another idea you might like is taking a pregnancy test and attaching a special note to it, such as “Coming Soon” or “Our Little Miracle.” You can present the test to your partner, family, or friends and watch their surprised and delighted reactions as they realize the news.

Use a Cake to Tell the Big News

Who doesn’t love a delicious surprise? Using a cake to announce the news is really fun. You can bake or order a cake with a hidden message inside, let’s say, “We’re Expecting!” or “Baby on the Way.”


Then you can gather your loved ones, and when it’s time for dessert, cut the cake to reveal the sweet surprise.

Get a ‘Promoted to Grandad’ T-shirt

For the future grandparents, you can get a special gift – surprise them with a T-shirt that proudly announces their new role. Whether it says “Promoted to Grandad” or “Grandma in Training,” watching their faces light up with excitement will be an unforgettable moment.

Reveal it with a Book

There are many children’s books about a mother having a baby that can help you reveal your pregnancy in a fun way. But it’s also possible to create your own book. By making your book, you can tell the story of your personal journey to parenthood. You can lead to the big announcement by including heartfelt messages and pictures in chronological order.

Film the Moment You Tell the Kids the News

If you already have children, you could also capture their precious reactions when you tell them about the new addition to the family. Filming the moment and sharing it with your loved ones can help you capture and preserve the excitement that your little ones feel.

Frame the Scan Photo

And here comes the most traditional way to inform your partner, family, and friends – framing the ultrasound photo. The moment of seeing your baby for the first time is a memory you might like to preserve for a lifetime.


So why not frame it and use it in your home interior? It’s also a good idea to present the photo to your loved ones as a heartfelt keepsake.

Share the Scan Online

If you’re wondering how to make a digital pregnancy announcement without any hustle and bustle, then you can simply share the ultrasound scan on social media or through messengers.  

Use Halloween Pumpkins

If you’re announcing your pregnancy around Halloween, you can take advantage of the festive spirit of the holiday. For instance, you can carve your special message into a pumpkin. Halloween also gives you an opportunity to take creative photos that you wouldn’t probably take on a regular day.

Here’s a posing idea you can try: pick a pumpkin that is about the same size as your bump, ask your partner to hold the pumpkin standing in front of you and position the pumpkin in front of your belly.

Voice Your Pet’s Thoughts

Do you have a pet? If yes, then they can participate, too. Let your pet speak and share their thoughts on becoming a sibling. To do so, you can use a simple sheet of paper or add text captions to a picture of your pet using a photo editor. This image can be used for your social media pregnancy announcement and as a family meme to be shared for fun.


Now, you know some of the best ways to announce your pregnancy. You don’t have to choose just one. You can use different ideas for telling the big news to your partner, friends, family, and even colleagues. Just pick what suits your personality better and enjoy the process.
