Even as parents-to-be take one of the first steps in this journey, they also start wondering how and when to announce the pregnancy to their family and friends.
In earlier times, couples used to take a substantial amount of time before disclosing that they are expecting. But fast forward to today’s times, pregnancy announcements have become the ‘IT thing ‘in the first step towards parenting.
