Pregnancy by IVF, IUI, or surrogacy always tells a story. Sometimes it’s a story of prior loss or unfulfilled hopes. Sometimes it’s a first step on the journey to parenthood for two parents who know they can’t conceive spontaneously, like in the of case same-sex couples. Sometimes, it’s a single parent by choice who has taken growing their family into their own hands.

Whatever unique tale you have to tell, announcing you’re expecting your IVF baby, or a surrogate is carrying your little one, is a moment to cherish. The special circumstances that brought you to conceiving a baby with IVF, IUI, or surrogacy might have been tough, but they were worth it. Here are some cute ways to share your baby news with the world.
