Fun Pregnancy Announcements

These days the old “call mom and dad and tell them we are expecting” is boring and lame, I guess. Even though it worked perfectly for me three times, it seems to be so much more fun to do it differently and record the reaction.

There are so many fun and creative ways to make the announcement, I pulled a few of the more creative ones out to share:

During a game of Mad Gab:

This one, well….. it starts out “Beauty and the Beast” meets “Miracle of Life” and ends up….very different. Count the movie references!

And finally, sometimes the response just isn’t what you’d hoped for:

And NO! I am not looking to make an announcement of my own!! (You know you wondered…)

How many doulas does it take to change a lightbulb?

None. We don’t actually change the light bulb. We encourage you to change your own lightbulb in the manner you feel is most appropriate for you. We can discuss with you different lightbulb changing methods and help you develop a plan for changing your lightbulb. We offer emotional support and encouragement during the entire process, from climbing the ladder to turning on the light switch to make sure the bulb works, we are there for you every step of the way. It’s your lightbulb, your way.
