Push Present

"What the hell is a push present? Don't tell me women get gifts for giving birth? This might sound cheesy but the best gift would be a healthy baby! Just saying"

This was a post from someone I know on  Facebook yesterday that started a kind of debate. The person who wrote this has never given birth, and doesn't have any children. What was most surprising to me was how offended I automatically felt by her comments. (I would like to note that I love this person like a sister). Yes, a healthy baby is the best thing you could ask for, but I kind of think the concept of a push present is kind of sweet. When you've pushed a watermelon out of your vagina, getting a little gift from the person who put the watermelon there in the first place is a nice gesture. I know extravagant  push presents are all the rage in Hollywood, and I'm sure that's what she's referring to, but the point is should she get to have an opinion about this?


  1. Meh... she can have her opinion but I'd want to point out she might change her mind once she's done the "push" lol. I got my Eternity Ring after my first baby - traditional and lovely! For my others I got sweet treat gift bags from hubby filled with chocolate and other such things :D We've never called them Push Presents but it's nice to spoil Mum too.... It's hard work after all!

  2. Couldn't have said it better +Charlotte Walker. She will experience it one day. The gesture is sweet though. I nominated you for a Liebster Award. :)
