The community offered this mom in need a lot of great advice about the right time to throw a baby shower. Read some of their responses below.
“My sister is due in about 2 weeks and just had her shower last weekend. I ended up waiting to have my shower till after my little was born.”
“I had mine right at 35 weeks.”
“Don’t worry about that right now, consider having a welcome home baby party instead. You dont need the added stress. Take care!”
“About a month before the due date.”
“I did mine the first week of June and I was due at the end of August. We did ours so early because summers are super busy in my family and we just keep backing up until we found a good date.”
“I had mine 9 days before I delivered due to preeclampsia as well. Little did we know she would be here at 34 weeks. We planned ours in advance for around 33 weeks thinking I’d have plenty of time in between. I would say around 28-30 weeks to be safe if you suspect you’ll have preeclampsia again.”
“If you want a baby shower do it between 30 and 35 weeks. Or you can have a welcome home baby party at 1-2 months old! Giving yourself time to heal and to get comfortable and bond with baby!”
