Giveaway! Win Birth Announcements!

Jane (Boatman Geller) is excited to introduce you to fellow entrepreneur, Devon Clement, a certified postpartum doula, new parent guide, and baby demystifier. Jane thinks so highly of Devon's advice for new parents (and parents to be) that she is offering a BG Birth Announcement Giveaway ($125 value) for one lucky winner! Click here to sign up for Devon's free Mini E-Book by Monday, May 14th and be entered to win. We will announce the winner here on Friday, June 1st.

Devon and BG teamed up to give you some advice...
People want to see your baby and you will not have the time, or wherewithal, to put your announcements together those first few days the baby is here! You'll want to use your limited free time to rest, shower, and snuggle your little one.

1. Create your announcement ahead of time. Choose the design, font, color and text. Go ahead and place your order with a BG retailer! You can even have proofs done beforehand to make sure that you are happy with your choices. Don't know yet if you are having a boy or girl? Design one of each and be truly prepared!

2. Pre-order your envelopes from Boatman Geller and get them addressed before the baby even comes – this way, all you'll have to do is stuff the envelopes with your gorgeous announcements. Or, ask your visitors to pitch in when they ask how they can help!

3. Contact BG when the baby arrives to fill in the name, vital statistics and submit that "oh so adorable" photo of your newborn!

It can mean the world to have a knowledgeable, caring person to talk to, reach out to, ask questions of, and be reassured that everything is normal. Someone to take care of YOU so you can take care of your baby! Devon Clement acts as a coach, consultant, caregiver & confidence reinforcer for "frazzled 'rents" who want it all — starting with one good night's sleep. Her company, Mama's Best Friend gives new moms & dads foundational skills & emotional support to care for their babies (and themselves) — so they can stop freaking out, and start having fun!
