Quotes and Wishes as Congratulations for Giving Birth

Quotes and Wishes as Congratulations for Giving Birth

Sending your congratulations on a new birth can be done in many different ways and is a great way of sending your greetings when you don’t quite know what to say.

You can write a card, send a WhatsApp or leave a beautiful voice message to greet the newborn child. But at the end of the day, you know your relationship with the parents better than we ever can, so go ahead and choose what is best for you.

With our lovely selection of congratulatory quotes, sayings and messages, we have a few additional tips for you to focus on to make your words come across with intent.

Here is what you need to pay attention to…

Relate to the Family

Relating to the family is incredibly important when it comes to sending your congratulations. For one thing, you know what they are like and how they perceive certain things.

If you are unsure of how they would respond to something humorous, then stick to a safe option like a beautiful saying or a quote offering a little bit of wisdom.

Adding a few words about the parents themselves is also a great way to make your message even more special. For example, mention a hobby they like or think back to an experience you’ve had together that you can draw in on.

This will show them how deeply you care and how much the significant milestone means to you too.

Show Emotion

Show Emotion

The birth of a new child is one of the most emotional experiences one can ever have. So why not feel free to show yours too?

An ideal way to do this can be by saying something you have always thought but have kept to yourself. Show the new parents how much they mean to you, how important they are, how much you love them and that you will always be there for them when they need you.

This is the perfect opportunity to express loving messages, well wishes for their future and how much you appreciate being part of this life changing experience.

Mention the Baby’s Name

Mentioning the precious little one’s name is a sincere way to show your interest in the child and create a bond from the get-go.

The parent’s will be thrilled to see you’ve addressed their baby personally and most likely feel like your message has a personal touch – and our messages are a great go-to for exactly this.

Just ensure that you spell the baby’s name correctly and that you are sure of the gender, as you don’t want to be left red-faced in front of the family. An extra special touch you can add to your message, is to include the meaning of the name too.

Gifting a Framed Message

Gifting a Framed Message

If you’re looking to take your congratulations a little further, you can consider printing out your chosen quote in a beautiful font or writing it out yourself.

You could also add a photo or draw little baby art (such as a pair of small socks or a teddy) and print them out.

Framing this is a special way to preserve your message for life and will look great hanging next to the baby’s cot.
