The last thing I wanted to do after the birth of my son was to make a ton of phone calls to let people know all the details. I wanted to spend those first few hours bonding as a family, not on the phone. I had also been in labor all day, and I was recovering from an unplanned c-section. Most of our friends and relatives learned about The Boy's birth through word of mouth the next day.
I recently became aware of a new service called Baby's First Phone Call, which is an automated call tree that allows new parents to notify friends and family of the arrival of their bundle of joy without the hassle of making dozens of individual phone calls. What a great service, and something I wish I had known about back then!
Baby's First Phone Call makes it incredibly easy on a new parent. All you have to do is set up an account before the baby is born, and enter the names and phone numbers of all the people that you would like to notify when the baby is born. Once your baby is here, you only have to make one phone call where you will leave a personal voice-mail message. This is a great way to share the details of the birth, such as weight, length, hospital room number, or whether or not you would like visitors. The service then calls each number that you submitted, and plays your personal greeting. Callers also have the option of leaving a return message that can be heard by the new parents at their convenience. It's that easy! Baby's First Phone Call offers a variety of packages to suit your specific needs.
