The birth of a new baby is such a special time! It’s a sweet period full of memories that will last forever. People typically take many photos during this time to cherish their precious bundle of joy. Your friends and family have patiently awaited your baby’s birth, and this is the perfect time to give them a glimpse of your babe by announcing their arrival via mail. I think it is such a personal and unique touch!
There are so many great birth announcements that it can be overwhelming. If you haven’t scheduled a newborn photography session yet, you can use a photo you have snapped yourself. Newborns tend to be very photogenic since they sleep most of the time. It’s easy to grab a great shot of them with your smartphone, and then you can use a website service to create a birth announcement. Here are 20 of the cutest birth announcements we love for you to choose from.
20 Birth Announcements We Love
1. Rainbow Sky
Such a stunning announcement for any baby but especially a rainbow baby. I love the gorgeous foil detail on this card, and there is a spot on the back for more photos and a personal message from your family.
The simplicity of this one is stunning. It allows the photo to shine on this birth announcement. You can choose from five color borders and personalize them with your child’s birth stats.
3. Colorful Stats
I adore this colorful yet modern birth announcement. The information about the baby’s birth stats frames the photo beautifully. This is a fun choice for any family to announce their newest bundle of joy.

I hope you find a card that fits your family’s personality and style beautifully. Congratulations on your newborn, and enjoy this special time!
