Announcing a pregnancy is such an exciting moment; letting family and friends in on your news makes things feel just a little more official. There are so many adorable, sentimental, funny, or sweet ways to spread the word, and lots of parents decide to mark this milestone with a few items Baby can actually wear later…enter the statement onesie! 

You can pair one of these pregnancy announcement onesies with baby booties and a little hat or bow to make a cute flat lay that tells your story. Other parents choose to incorporate the onesie in a photo with Mom and/or Dad holding it up.  

You can also use one of these pieces for an in-person pregnancy announcement to the grandparents-to-be and other family members. Just fold and box it up, and hand it over like a present—trust us, this will be the best thing they’ve received all year!
