@ExcitedScaredBee:  I would definitely send the info with a picture to your boss, and let him trickle the info down!

I have a good friend who, I also work with. She is the one who let the boss know I would not be at work and that had a child since I had my little boy on a weekend after I left the hospital I called work and the boss let everyone know then had my little guy early.

@BrandNewBride:  +1, anyone that you’re close with at work will contact you directly probably. If anyone asks before you leave this week maybe ask if they want you to send them a picture or something.

I texted my assistant my son’s name and birth stats and let her spread the word to the office.

When my coworkers have had babies, usually they do a BCC email to the people at the office that they are friendly with, announcing the birth and attaching a picture. I think for clients/customers, unless you’re personal friends, I would not send any official announcement and just let them hear through the grapevine, or from you directly next time you talk.

@BrandNewBride:  +1, I plan on contacting my boss first and HR. HR will tell my coworkers, my boss will tell external contacts. Coworkers I’m close will with get the email I send out to friends. If you have external contacts that have been particularly wonderful, you may want to send them a private email a few weeks after the birth thanking them for their support, reminding them of when you will return to work, and some updated pictures.

It’s funny that we are clueless when Facebook isn’t involved lol! Like, what did we do before FB and email?! CALL someone?! Fax them a photo?! I would never!
