English term or phrase: congratulations (on your new baby)!
Just preparing myself to congratulate a Portuguese (European) on her soon-to-be happy event!
lexical
Parabéns (pelo nascimento do vosso bébé)
Explanation:
If like you said you want to congratulate a Portuguese (from Portugal) then this is the most common way of doing it.

Another possibility is the use of the word "Felicitações" but not quite as good in my opinion as it contains a certain formality in itself...

I would go for PARABÉNS!

Parabéns (pelo nascimento de seu bebe)


Explanation:
This is how we would say that here in Brasil. For "Continental" Portuguese you should go with Elisa's suggestion above.
