Our Baby Shower Response to Coronavirus

You have options!

The pregnancy boards and chat rooms at What to Expect, The Bump, and many others have been full of women looking for baby shower alternatives due to coronavirus. 

Due to the coronavirus’s highly contagious, and unpredictable nature, it makes sense that expectant mothers are looking for ways to have a baby shower during covid’s pandemic that will also keep their families safe. 

Well, look no further. 

WebBabyShower has helped thousands and thousands of families organize online baby showers for over a decade. We want to help out now by letting people know that they do have options.  

The Rebate

Our rebate program is now over but we offer fair, transparent pricing and now have a new monthly subscription plan that is only $29 a month! WebBabyShower is a great option for anyone looking for a safe yet intimate alternative baby shower due to coronavirus.

WebBabyShower has served an important niche for customers with family spread all over the map, or dealing with specific circumstances like bed rest, or military families on deployment. Often our customers mix an online shower with a smaller in-person gathering. It’s been a growing trend for over a decade as many women’s web of family and friends stretches across the country and overseas.

If you are so inclined, please reach out to us telling us about your situation, which we can share on this page, allowing other women to know that it’s not affecting just them and that they are not alone.

In the meantime, here’s a little bit of what you’ll get if you choose to utilize our customizable themes and templates.

Baby Shower Alternatives Due To Covid

When you’re used to traditional baby showers, a virtual shower might take a little bit of getting used to. But we hope you’ll see that, with WebBabyShower, congregating online doesn’t diminish the fun of the event. 

As the first virtual baby shower service online, WebBabyShower has managed to carve out a unique lane where their customers get all of the fun of a traditional baby shower for a fraction of the price and none of the headache. 

The platform allows for parents to send out invitations and keepsakes,  host games, blog about the baby, upload pictures, and more. Afterward, the website can serve as a hub for updates about the baby, as it reaches important milestones.  

Plus, WebBabyShower offers customers the unique ability to keep their shower going for six months! That means that there will be ample time for all friends and family to stop by the secure URL, get updates, leave messages, and celebrate the new baby. 

With WebBabyShower, no one in the family has to feel left out, and most importantly, no one has to expose themselves to the Coronavirus just to say they had a baby shower. 

Win/win all around.

Every woman and pregnancy deserves to be celebrated. We wish you all a safe and beautiful Spring.

I googled how to throw a virtual baby shower and a link from babypalooza.com stated it. I really appreciate this you have no clue! Thank you so much. So many things are being taken from us first time moms right now, and stress and anxiety and so high. You’re really doing a great thing!

We are so sad not to be celebrating my daughter-in-laws shower in person, but realize it’s just not possible at this scary time when we are all sheltering in place. Thank you for creating this site so we ‘virtually’ celebrate the coming event! You even had a llama style to choose from, similar to the paper invitation we had already sent. 

– Tamara Bryan

I’m throwing a baby shower for my cousin who is due in July. I offered the idea of throwing one after the baby is born, but who knows how long this will take to blow over? I just want to show her she is loved and supported just as much as if we were there in person.

We bought a home in Vegas and decided to remodel it. Then we found out we were having a baby. With my family in San Francisco and his family in New Jersey, we were scheduled to have 3 baby showers in total. One with each of the families and then on in San Francisco for our friends from Los Angeles and San Francisco. We’ve cancelled all 3, as we just can’t safely travel even if and when the restrictions might lift, plus the size of the gatherings. 
We are grateful for our health of friends and family, and grateful that we can build a central place for everyone to gather and come together to keep everyone involved.

My shower was planned for January of this year, but my boys decided to come early so we had to reschedule. We planned again for April 18th, only to have a stay at home order put in place. Our venue cancelled on us on account of the Coronavirus so once again we had to change plans. I was so happy to find WebBabyShower because it is allowing all of my friends and family to be involved in welcoming the boys, and it is even letting more people be involved than we were originally planning, since distance is no longer a factor for participation. I was very happy to see how easy the site was to setup, and being able to personalize it has been fantastic. Thanks for making my baby shower happen, third time’s the charm!

We began to realize that an in-person shower would not be available to us because of health guidelines due to COVID-19.  Therefore, we began researching creative ways that we could have a virtual baby shower. We discovered WebBabyShower and it was a great solution for a changing situation!  It provided an immediate calm knowing we could make it work no matter the changing scenario while keeping everyone healthy and the ability to reach further beyond the original invite list of local guests. It’s given folks something to do while being stuck at home.  Thanks for this creative celebration tool!

Thank you!
My daughter is expecting her little boy in May.  We had invitations out for her baby shower now for some time.  We were planning on a huge celebration at our church, but with the current situation and guidelines, we just don’t want to limit anyone from participating in the celebration.  We also want everyone to stay safe.

First time mom here and I was so looking forward to my shower on April 5th to celebrate my baby boy Riley. Never in my wildest dreams did I expect it to never happen. I’ve been talking about it for months. I’ve held off on cancelling, giving myself false hope that I wouldn’t have to. But it recently became apparent that I had no choice but to cancel. I was immediately devastated, feeling robbed. Not only would I be missing out on fellowship with my friends and family during this special time, but almost all the items on my registry are still there! The possibility of getting to do some sort of alternative has truly lifted my spirits!

Infertility has robbed us of so much for years and when we finally got the chance to celebrate being pregnant we felt like we couldn’t. WebBabyShower gave us back the opportunity to still celebrate our pregnancy in leu of an in person shower. The more we thought about, it was almost for the best because now those who are in other states can still join without having to travel or being upset that they couldn’t attend. We’re looking at it as a win win!

I am due to have my first baby in May and my baby showers were scheduled for this month and next. With the onset of COVID-19 and all the precautions that we have taken as a nation, all of my showers were cancelled. Webbabyshower gave me the option to still conduct a baby shower without everyone physically being able to gather. After years of struggling with infertility, I have been looking forward to the day I could have my very own baby shower. This option has been a great assistance to me and really is playing a vital part in continuing life with some semblance of regularity in an unknown time. Thank you WebBaby Shower!

We had to unfortunately cancel our in-person baby shower due to the current circumstances. It was very heartbreaking to do since this is my very first baby and would be my first shower. I also will miss out on having a work shower as well I’m a Kindergarten teacher and was looking forward to celebrating with my colleagues as well. However, since this is out of our control we have decided to do a virtual baby shower. Hopefully family and friends will understand and will join in with us. I’m due in Early June and hope I’ll have enough supplies for the baby. Glad we have found an alternative and can’t wait to use WeBabyShower.

Hello! I am one of the many new moms that cannot have a traditional baby shower due to covid-19. I planned on flying home to have the party with family and friends next month when I wasn’t too pregnant to fly. My due date is in late June. While researching virtual showers your website popped up.  On the site it mentioned you are giving away a discount code because of the virus. I would really appreciate it if that is true.

I think webbaby is the closest to recreating the traditional baby shower for this first time mom.

My name is Christina. My husband comes from a large Italian family (in which he will probably be the only one to continue the family name!), and family is the most important thing to him, but he is 100% infertile so IVF was our only option.  We have been trying for 5 long years with many disappointing egg retrievals, 1 chemical pregnancy, and a 3 more failed embryo transfers. All while my family reproduced like rabbits around us! On top of that, we are both only children and therefore having our parents first grandchild…no pressure, right?! Everyone has been looking forward to our baby shower for years and we don’t even know if they understand our shower cannot be in person. There’s a small chance we may be able to have a small shower closer to my due date in July, but we don’t want to take that risk and have no back up. We are hoping to figure out how to run a virtual shower and are so happy that there is a company that specializes and excels in it! We cannot wait to celebrate our baby girl with our families in a new and innovative way.

Hi there,
I am planning a virtual baby shower for my beloved friend and coworker.  We are both ICU nurses, went to nursing school together, have worked in the same unit for years, and are pregnant with our first babies 2 weeks apart later this summer!  Since COVID, it has been difficult to feel all the exciting things that pregnancy offers, like having family over to help with the nursery or having the world see your bump.  I want to plan something special for my friend so that she knows how
