How Will You Announce Baby's Arrival?

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will mix the theatrical traditions of the palace with social media when they herald the birth of their baby. 

Staffers will post a bulletin signed by the medical team on a wooden easel on the forecourt of Buckingham Palace, and at the same time an announcement will go out digitally. 

The posting on the easel (the same one that was used to announce Prince William's birth in 1982) will precede any social media announcement and underline the historic traditions of the occasion. 

But the first hint that the public will get that there's some exciting baby news will come when someone from Kensington Palace is spotted leaving the hospital in London with an envelope. They'll hand it to a member of the royal household who will deliver it to the palace.

When it's placed on the easel, the sex of the baby will be revealed for the first time.

Interesting!  I was wondering how this announcement would be made.  What are your plans for announcing the arrival of your baby? Will your family and friends know when you are in labor or will you tell them all after baby has arrived?
