Baubles For Giving Birth?!

As if your little bundle of joy isn’t enough of a gift at the end of a long nine months, some women are expecting “push” presents. Never heard of a push present before? You’re not alone. Why do some women think they deserve a reward for giving birth?

Woman opening push present

Here's what women should expect upon delivering a baby: Gazing into the eyes of the most precious human being they've ever met, months of interrupted sleep, massive hair loss, several unwanted pounds, a casserole or two made by a kind neighbor they've never actually spoken to and maybe a bouquet of flowers. Turns out some new mommies are putting together wish lists for their post-partum feat consisting of significant (think sparkly, engraved gemstones) pieces of jewelry, family trips, designer diaper bags, elaborate spa days and high-priced kitchen appliances.

According to Wiki, "the tradition of gift-giving to commemorate a birth has long roots in England and India and the term 'push present' first appeared in 1992."

A token of love, appreciation and gratitude

Some women may argue that a push gift represents a husband's love, appreciation and gratitude, but wouldn't a hands-on father that co-parents and occasionally takes a night feeding and oversees tummy time so you can get a hot shower suffice?

Maybe the push gift has gotten a bad rap, what with celebrities like Rachel Zoe donning a ring worth $250,000 after the birth of her son.

Nanny M., creator of Nanny App and a graduate of Norland College, England's prestigious, world-famous college for nannies says, "A typical present in Upper East Side, New York was another solitaire ring, but I saw cars, boats, ski lodges and all sorts of things given. I know of one family where the husband gave his wife an oil painting of the delivery. I assume it was painted from a photo. Thankfully it was pretty abstract." Can you even imagine?

We like shiny things too

We're calling hogwash, but we may be in the minority.

After months of morning sickness, cankles, heartburn, embarrassing flatulence and hours of intense labor, maybe a pair of stunning Tiffany diamond earrings is a suitable token of gratitude. conducted a survey in 2007 with over 30,000 participants and discovered that 38 percent of new mothers received a push present, and 55 percent of pregnant mothers wanted one, though fewer thought it was actually expected. Roughly 40 percent of both groups said the baby itself was already a present and did not need an additional present.
