Sharing Your Exciting Pregnancy News with Your Kids

If you started a family before your vasectomy and now have a pregnant partner after a vasectomy reversal, one of the most exciting moments will be sharing the news with your kids. Here are some ideas for letting your kids know that they are getting a new brother or sister.

Take Your Kids to a Doctor’s Appointment

Older children might not fall for this trick, but for younger kids, consider springing the news by taking them to one of your doctor’s appointments. Watch the realization set in as they see the baby on the ultrasound screen or when they hear the heartbeat, or explain to them exactly what is happening if they don’t get it at first. Not only is this a great way to share the news, but it is also exciting for your kids to see what the baby looks like at this stage and to actually hear their new sibling’s heart beating.

Get a Cake

Something almost every kid can agree on is cake, so send a message with a special cake that delivers the news. Order or bake a cake in the shape of a baby item, or have the news written on the cake. This method helps to share the news and gives you something to celebrate it with all at the same time. You can also use a cake later in the pregnancy to reveal the gender to your child.

Give Your Kids a Gift

There are lots of fun big brother and big sister items you can give your kids, from t-shirts to tote bags, that share the news and give them a little something to commemorate the occasion. You can also give each of your kids a scrapbook they can use to memorialize their experiences during the pregnancy and arrival of their new brother or sister. These scrapbooks can become treasured mementos in the future.

Dr. Joshua Green at the Center for Vasectomy Reversal in Sarasota makes moments like these possible with our vasectomy reversal and infertility procedures. Make an appointment to see if you are a candidate for vasectomy reversal by calling (941) 894-6428.
