Just a phone call away
Thanks to grannyg for this tip:
There’s a really cool new service for expectant parents. SnappyBaby will deliver news of a new birth via phone and e-mail for you. From what I can see, it seems really simple (they say it’s so easy even a husband can do it. Ouch.) – you call and record a message with all the details, and they send the recording by phone and/or e-mail to your recipient list. I imagine it would save a lot of time. But while the marketing materials suggest that SnappyBaby can tell all your loved ones the good news, I think my mother would not have been thrilled to get word of a new grandchild via a recorded phone message. So my vote is, friends and extended family? Yes. Immediate family? No.
