My buddy who has a 6 month old told me he got fed up of keeping everyone in the loop throughout the 14 hour labour. So we created a service to fix this for when my wife delivers in February.
Check it out at www.PreggoPager.com
PreggoPager is a free service that is simple and easy for you to keep those important people in the loop with all your labour updates. Call one number and record a personalized voice message and PreggoPager will call your closest family and friends to share your news!
I'm going to use it, you should consider using it too. Maybe even add it to the birth plan.
