Giveaway: Baby's First Phone Call! (giveaway closed)

I have a friend of mine lined up to test out this service for me (no more babies for my family, so I can't test it out personally!), but I wanted to go ahead and get the giveaway posted. This is for a great new service, called Baby's First Phone Call!

From their website:

Baby's First Phone Call is an automated call tree that allows you to notify all of your friends and family of the arrival of your bundle of joy without the hassle of making dozens of individual phone calls, or leaving some friends and family to find out second- or third-hand.
With Baby's First Phone Call, you set up an account before your baby is born—when you still have a moment of time to yourself—and enter the names and phone numbers of all the people you want to notify when the baby arrives. Then, after the baby is born, you make a single phone call and leave a personal voice-mail message of any length with all the details you want to share.
Not only can you tell your friends and family when your little bundle arrived, you can share information such as the hospital and room number you're in and whether and when you'd like to receive visitors.
Our system places calls to each of the phone numbers in your account. If the person answers the phone they hear your happy message. If they don't answer, the message is left on their voicemail or answering machine. In either case, there is an option for them to leave you a return message that you can pick up at your convenience.
I love this idea! We ended up telling most of our friends and family about our first child via having friends call each other (no internet in that hospital) and about our second by Facebook. In both cases, I was recovering from surgery and was pretty out of it, and I wanted my husband nearby, not busy making lots of phone calls. So I think this a great service!

I have 4 $50 gift certificates to give away- it would be easy to give this to a friend if you don't need it for yourself, so enter for someone else even if you don't need it! Currently the service only works in the US, so please only enter if you're in the US or if you have a US friend you'd like to pass this on to.  There are a number of different packages you can get with your gift certificate, and you can even order a onesie if you'd like!

To enter:
Visit Baby's First Phone Call and let me know what you like best about this idea!

I like that it makes it so phone call and all of your friends and family can be reached with the news! It's especially great for tired parents who just want to spend some time with their newborn :).

I like that if someone doesn't answer the phone, the message will be left on their voicemail :)

I love the idea of a phone service so i can focus on the baby and not the dropped calls that my phone will eventually give me.
