8 weeks - planning the pregnancy announcement

8 weeks - planning the pregnancy announcement

Congratulations you're having a baby!

You'll be going through ALL of the emotions right now, excitement, nervousness, bewilderment and definitely teariness! One thing you can be certain of is announcing your pregnancy to those closest to you is going to be special. Now's the perfect time to plan how you are going to announce the exciting news to your family and friends.

Announcing a pregnancy through a well thought-out photograph can be a really fun way to share the news with those that matter. Lifecake allows you to create the story of your child's life and this can start BEFORE their arrival into the world, Invite family and friends to your child's account so they can follow in your pregnancy journey and beyond, they'll love the build-up, especially if they can't see your bump growing in the flesh! 

Here are just a few ways you can announce your news:

  • Writing a message on your belly
  • If you purchased baby shoes, picture them next to you and your partners adult-sized versions
  • Already have a little one? Announce their promotion to big brother or sister in a photograph
  • Use a balloon with the message 'expected to pop in 2017'

But what is Lifecake?

Lifecake was born with a beautiful baby! Nick, a co-founder, flew out to San Francisco to help his sister with the birth of his first nephew, Leo. Each day he took photos, videos and made notes on Leo's progress. Lifecake had started - Nick just didn't know it yet! Two weeks later he returned to the UK and felt instantly cut-off, they had calls, he got emails and they even tried a blog. It didn't work. Two years later he formed a team to tackle the challenge - a single place to record, relive and share the story of a child's life. Lifecake had officially started!

Like Nick's sister, we know that parents love to share photos of their child but they want a safe, quick and easy way to do that. And, like Nick, family and friends are increasingly spread across the globe, feeling like they are missing out on the fun. Lifecake allows parents to do three important things....
