When news about a pregnancy gets out, plans are made for the arrival of the baby with a baby shower for the mother. The father is rarely included in this celebratory ritual. If you want to congratulate the father for the pregnancy, a phone call sends the message loud and clear. While a congratulations card may also be appreciated, nothings says it better than vocally expressing your excitement for the husband of the baby to be.
Things You'll Need
- Congratulations card
Call and talk to the wife to find out if it's going to be a boy or a girl. The more information you can collect, the better prepared you'll be when you talk to the husband.
Call the husband and tell him congratulations on the pregnancy of his wife. Tell him that you're excited for him and ask him how he's handling the news. Listen to what he has to say and tell him that you support his desires to have a family.
Sign your name on a congratulations card for the father-to-be and mail it to the husband's address for a supportive follow-up. Do this the same day you congratulated him over the phone.
Tips & Warnings
- Avoid mentioning the sex of the baby if you're not sure what they're having.
