How to write a unique baby announcement on Instagram

Announcing your baby on Instagram can be as simple or as detailed as you want it to be! 

Four great ways to announce your little one’s birth in your own words include: 

  • sharing their name and measurements
  • telling their birth story
  • giving your friends and family a sneak peek in Instagram stories before a big reveal later
  • writing a special message addressed to your baby in your caption

I kept our social media announcement really simple because I was exhausted after giving birth and waited a couple of days to post.

We shared it cross-platform from Instagram to our friends on Facebook the same day.

Here’s my second baby’s announcement on Instagram.

Since Nadia’s birth story was so crazy, I wanted to save it for a post later that month. 

Here’s the image I used along with the caption I wrote.

Writing your child’s birth story also makes a special memory for you.

I recommend writing it on your computer and then posting a condensed version of it on Instagram should you choose to share it with your friends and followers. 

Instagram’s character limit is 2,200 but the full version of her birth story is 8,500 characters so I had plenty of editing to do to get it at the right sharable length.
