Baby Grapevine was set up by the founder, Donna Kent as a direct result of her own experience. Donna's first child was born after a labour lasting nearly two days!

Trying to call everyone and keep them informed about what was going on was very difficult. Friends and relatives were getting concerned and the midwives were inundated with anxious callers. All this added to the stress of the situation.

Baby Grapevine was therefore devised to help midwives, parents and their friends and family keep in touch during this very special occasion.

Baby Grapevine is a web and telephony-based birth announcement service which allows friends and family to keep up-to-date with all the latest developments as they happen. The service uses email, text and voicemail simultaneously to ensure everyone can hear the news and share the joy.

Not just this, Baby Grapevine also provides a baby album so everyone can see the pictures and share the joy within hours of the baby being born.

Now, instead of midwives constantly taking messages, friends and family simply ring the service and listen to the latest update or leave a message of their own. This greatly reduces the workload of nursing staff and helps to turn a potentially very stressful situation into a far more calm and enjoyable one for everyone concerned.

We endeavour to provide the very best support and technology to help make the birth of your baby very special. If you have any queries or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
