Welcome to the forum, Rijkgriffoen! In the future, please put your username in the title of your puzzles. I'll put it in this time.

Birth notice= announcement of the birth of a child? A newborn child? Is it something written? Something spoken? If so, by a doctor?

Does the fear come from something related to the birth? Fear for the baby's health? Is a misunderstanding involved?

LTPF - Lateral Puzzles Forum List of... which is used if you want to ask a question about something which belongs to a notorious and limited list of items (e.g. centuries, months) and you are too lazy to name each item specifically :-))

****************SPOILER**************

The puzzle was:
A man scares the hell out before he recieves a birth notice.

The answer is:
The man is a shepherd in the field near Bethlehem:

“And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.”
Luke 2.8-11 (KJV)
