What happens when...

a baby shower is scheduled to occur in 5 days and the mom goes into labor (and has the baby) a month early (which happens to also be 5 days before the shower)?  Does the baby shower still go on?  Will people still show up? 

Matt loves Munkii!!!

Re: What happens when...

  • A baby shower five days after labor seems like a bit too soon, especially if there's complications.

    I'm guessing the shower will be postponed (and turned into a "meet the baby" party).  If I were invited to the original shower, I would make sure the new mom/baby got the gift ASAP.

    I agree with Karen.  Hope the mom and baby are both doing well!!

  • This exact thing happened to one of my closest girlfriends only she delivered 7 days before her shower.  The shower still went on and it was great.  She was feeling up to it and everyone took turns holding the baby- it ended up giving her a big break.  I think it just depends on the person, how well they heal and whether or not they are up to it.

  • I also think it depends on the person....but it will probably be postponed. 
  • My friend had her baby six weeks early and went to her shower three days later.  Unfortunately the baby had to stay in the hospital because she was still needing machines at that point.
