My step daughter is pregnant and her mother & sister live out of town. Should I host her baby shower?

  • Can you call her mom and ask them if they want to participate. Or if they want to have a shower for her, you can do it for your family and friends. Does that make sense? Because my in-laws lived a few hours away, I had a shower in their area and had one with my family. Easier than a lot of people traveling somewhere they have never been.

  • I would Co-host the shower-you have it at your house and you and her mother can plan together that way she doesn't feel left out.

  • Just make sure that you extend an offer for them to help, if not make sure they know they are invited.

  • Are u aiming for it to be a suprise? cause if you are maybe try contacting her mom and sister and get them in on it. Just cause they live outta town doesnt mean they cant be apart of it (speaking in terms that yall are on good terms). If ur not aiming for a suprise ask her how she feels about you hosting a baby shower for her and inviting them.
