A place for moms to connect
I've been getting a lot of calls lately on how to submit a birth announcement to The Sun. I thought I'd share this info since there are so many moms with new babies or who are about to have new babies.
To submit a birth announcement to the paper, go to www.gainesville.com/birthannouncement. You just fill out all the info and click submit!
Birth announcements are published the first Sunday of each month in the features section.
My daughter was born at The Birth Center her in Gainesville and they offer this to all new baby's (during the pregnancy they tell you this is an option and after the actual birth they give you instructions on how to get it done)....my cousin had her daughter at Shands the same day mine was born and I was really looking forward to reading both of their announcements until I bought my paper and saw the ONLY annoucements in their happened to be births at The Birth Center....my cousin never knew it was an option until I called to tell her they hadn't put her daughter's birth. It's very easy to accomplish and really anyone can do it for you, not to mention it's a really cute addition to any baby book :)
Thanks for this post!
