I’m old school, I break the news of a new arrival over the phone- not via social media, but one on one starting with the immediate family first, before I post anything online.
I shared the news of my daughter’s birth with my favourite auntie- she stayed awake during the entire birth!
She let her son know, privately, still giving me the opportunity to make a ‘public’ announcement… but then his wife immediately made a public announcement on social media as though she had just given birth and going as far as tagging me in her post!
Would this upset you? Or is it just the way things are done now?
