Should I have a baby shower?
by Sarah R.
I am 30 weeks pregnant with a baby that has a congenital heart defect. We have been told that our baby may not survive, either in utero or after birth. Our friends and family know about our situation.
I am not sure if it would be appropriate to have a baby shower. I don’t want to make anyone feel uncomfortable, and I also wouldn’t know how to handle returning the gifts to everyone if necessary.
I want to celebrate our new baby regardless, I just want to know if a “baby shower” is the right way to do this. Any advice would be appreciated!
