Set Up Ground Rules With Visitors
The worst way to send baby's first photo is if someone beat you to it. Your mom or sister might be so excited for your baby's arrival that they jump at the chance to pull out their phone and share the news with their loved ones. Make sure you set up some sharing guidelines.
The best bet is to ask that for as long as you're in the hospital, no one shares any photos without your consent. You have every right to control what's released during those first few days, if not for much longer.
