Primping for Childbirth

Social media are suffering how mothers announce that they have given birth. While their grandmothers sent telegrams, new moms are sharing the happy news through the internet. The announcement often includes photographs of mother and child soon after birth. The new generation of appearance-conscious women are thus having prenatal beauty treatments, including facials, manicures, and pedicures. Some will even arrange to have a hairdresser accompany them to the hospital. Why? To look good for the day of their delivery!

I think those gestures are way to overboard. It's normal if we love to announce a childbirth but it should be done with modesty in mind. Though I have nothing against such things but I still prefer the old-fashioned way. The world need not know about everything, only those people who really matters.
