It’s such a beautiful time of year to announce a pregnancy. Spring is here, the flowers and sun are out to stay, and you have a special little secret you’ve been keeping. Announcing your pregnancy on or around Mother’s Day is a lovely way to honor your baby-to-be—and your motherhood journey. Whether this is your first baby or one of many, there is truly something so lovely about a Mother’s Day announcement. 

Incorporate a spring theme, decorate with hearts and flowers, or dress up your bump in your favorite colors. No matter how you choose to make your announcement this Mother’s Day, it’ll be a touching moment for everyone in your orbit. Here is some inspiration for your Mother’s Day baby news.

A Mother’s Day bouquet and a shot of your growing belly are absolutely stunning ways to announce there’s a little love coming soon. If you’d rather go the no-bump route, an ultrasound photo and flowers work too.

There are so many adorable baby outfits out there that could be used in a pregnancy announcement, and many choices that call out Mother’s Day specifically. But what we love about this option is it’s simple and to the point, and can be worn by your baby once they’re here —on Mother’s Day or any day. (See more pregnancy announcement onesies!)
