The announcement
It's popular these days to do a big gender reveal, but something simple can be even better. Adding the sex of the baby early on might complicate things, especially if a child desperately wants a little sister or a little brother, but choose a nice environment and take the time to chat with your kid/s and share the happy news. Reassure them that your heart grows with each new baby and you have plenty of love to give to everyone. Tell them of the vital role they play in being a bigger sibling.
