The article talks about how a friends of the author had announced her birth on Facebook before they had even had a chance to do it and it left here feeling quite irate. I tend to agree with her. I would be majorly p***ed off.
I think its nice to share the joy to family members first, via phone call and a text with the picture, coming directly from the new parents. Then allow the parents to post on Facebook in their own time.
Ive seen a friend not even post that they had their baby until 2 days after she had her daughter, just so she would get inundated with messages and visitors. I can understand that because I actually requested no visitors in hospital to ensure I had the time to bond with my new baby and learn what the heck I was meant to do to keep him alive on a daily basis!! ha ha
So below Baby Centre UK created this announcement which is their words is "snazzy, polite and a touch passive-aggressive"
