WHAT IS A BABY SHOWER?

Despite baby showers originally being more popular in US, here in the UK the tradition of throwing a baby shower for Mummy-to-be has been increasing in popularity. The main aim is to shower the parent-to-be during the end and more difficult stage of pregnancy, just before her new baby arrives. Baby showers are usually planned by a close friend or relative and can be held either in a home, hall, garden or local eatery, many people theme the baby shower to something they know the new Mum will adore, but this isn’t essential. On the day there are usually a number of games played, food on offer and a present giving.
