What is a Web Baby Shower?
At the most basic level, a virtual baby shower should include a message board and photos. It can be as elaborate or simple as you want. It can include games and good wishes, stories and pregnancy updates. We are still working on online refreshments though!
While you can host a virtual baby shower at almost any social website, Web Baby Shower is already designed to meet the specific needs of baby showers, pregnancy celebrations and birth announcements!
Why have a virtual baby shower?
In today’s world, expecting parents aren’t always next door to family and friends. With the advent of the Internet and social media, however, we can all be a little closer. Here are some reasons to choose an online baby shower to either complement or replace a traditional baby shower:
- Excellent when expecting parents are far from family and friends
This is the number one reason families come to Web Baby Shower. Whether the expecting parents are out of the country on a military assignment or have relocated away from family for career reasons, having an online baby shower is sometimes the only way to get everyone together to say “congratulations.”
- Super mood lifter for moms-to-be who have been restricted to bed-rest
Know an expecting mom on bed rest? She will love an online baby shower! Knowing you cared enough to gather everyone together for her will help brighten her spirits. It can also give her a place to share any pregnancy news and to help feel like she can still connect with the world while she is taking care of herself in preparation for the arrival of her baby.
- Great complement to a traditional baby shower
An online shower can be the part of the shower that lasts before and after the shower. You can also share photos, videos and anecdotes with everyone who couldn’t make it to the baby shower.
- Online shopping is easy and popular
Having a virtual baby shower can help friends and relatives find and shop from baby registries online. Web Baby Shower, in particular, is a great resource for online registries since you can link to all sites where the mom and baby are registered.
- Everyone likes babies and computers too!
Because it involves computers, men are actually very receptive to participating in, and even hosting, a Web Baby Shower. An online baby shower is a great way to include everyone who wants to welcome the new baby.

“I hosted a Web Baby Shower for my daughter and her fiancé. We couldn’t have been more pleased with the entire experience! The shower allowed family and friends from the west to east coast to celebrate with us. Our guests really enjoyed the shower, also. They were happy to have the chance to share the fun with us and appreciated the convenience of the registry links. I would recommend this site to anyone who wants to share expecting a little one with those who aren’t near by!!”

We are a military couple living over 700 miles away from our families and have friends scattered all over the US. An online baby shower is the perfect way to include everyone, share information and photos. Thank you webbabyshower.”
