With my first child I got a pair of Christian louboutins and a trip to Jamaica for two week but this time I don’t think I will be getting anything
I never believed in them but I'm getting my tubes tied and I expect some pampering and gifts from my husband lol since he won't get snipped as they say
I got none
My husband gifted me a gold bracelet with two pearls connecting. We don’t call them push presents on our culture but our family always gifts gold as presents since colonization used gold to exploit us and we’re using it to reclaim our freedom. And it’s super cute and memorable 😍
It means being a gift/present by your partner for giving birth…never heard of it think it’s a bit silly and weird if I’m honest
Is this a serious post lol
With my first two I received nothing, not surprisingly. With my fiance, it was his first and my third, he got me a beautiful necklace and bracelet from Swarovski a few weeks after she was born. I haven't even thought of a push present I've been so sick. Now I'm being diagnosed w thyroid and autoimmune issues. We had some complications w that pregnancy, and it looks like this is more. I think it's a nice gesture, is it necessary? No. We sacrifice and put our lives on the line to birth these beautiful babies, I think it's sweet when they take that into consideration and think to get you something. We're so consumed w the baby, it's nice to be thought of and celebrated.
@Tia Hah! I wish! I wish I would feel like I’m winning..I am far from that though 😅
I personally didn't care for a push present, what I did was amazing but I didn't need a gift for it🤷🏻♀️ I've done many amazing things and didn't get gifts, we celebrated the child we made and our child was my gift Imo. I did get a birthstone ring of my sons birth Month on our anniversary but otherwise that's it. I think everyone is entitled to their opinions and their cultures experiences but please don't come on hear and shove in your face how your hubby got you all this espensive stuff. You can answer the question with out making other woman sad.
In that case, I’m four gifts waaaay overduuuue 😭 hehe.. I still want my gifts 🎁💐🛍💕!! Lol
I gave birth on August 8th to our second child. On Sept. 4th. my husband went grocery shopping and running errands..as he comes back home, out 2.5 yo boy greets him at the door, then my husband starts unpacking, my toddler is playing near us, I’m walking around the house with the newborn on my chest and my husband says: our babies are so precious, they are like diamonds…My though was: What a nice thing to say, I love that you think so. He then grabs my hand and takes me to the kicken pointing at the box with two diamond earrings and says: these are for you, for pushing out our little diamonds 🥰 I was shocked!! My husband has a way of surprising me but he hadn’t done so in such a loooong time that I almost cried when he did that It was not expected at all.
We’ve talked about it. When I’m ready, it’ll be a trip for myself he’ll pay for 😂😂 I didn’t want an item. I told him give me the money or pay for my getaway. So when I’m ready and I think he’s able to stay with baby. I’m getting f flew ouuuuuut 💃🏾
@Tia you said it!! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
@Amanda I hate that you don’t think that you did anything worth celebrating when you created life, but you did. You did do something amazing. You are amazing. I am sorry that no one celebrated you for it.

@Leah it's also to express your opinion about whatever topic you so choose, which is all I'm doing. Don't like it?? Oh well. Agree to disagree and keep it moving. I just know I wouldn't and couldn't accept a gift for carrying and birthing a child. I just find the idea preposterous.
@Lydia no, we're definitely NOT the same person. We don't even look alike. And who tf are you to tell somebody to stfu?? 😂😂😂😂
Lmao are Amanda and Shannon the same person. They look like twins. Also stfu, carrying and birthing a child is hard work and deserves appreciation. I never got a "push gift"and never heard of the term, but would have loved one to be honest.
I had never heard of this before, but my partner did insist on booking me a really lavish hotel room in advance for when babe hit 3 months. Figured I’d be mentally ready for a night away even if emotionally I wasn’t sure, and he was right. I spent 14hrs completely alone in a big fluffy robe, eating chicken wings in a king sized bed with a bottle of wine. He had a bunch of bevs and snacks sent to the room. It was honestly a turning point for me and I’m forever grateful. When I got home the next day I deleted the app I used to log everything she did and started going much more with her flow and my intuition, and it helped my PPD a tonnnnn. Just being removed for a sec to remember “oh yeah, I’m a person”. Best gift ever
For the 2 women commenting how ridiculous a push present is- please check yourself.
My hubby is Aussie and this is common there. 1st I got a new suv, for #2, I got a limited edition Bugaboo Donkey Duo with all the accessories.
Before kids, I battled cancer and has several surgeries to fix up my banged up insides. Had a little to no chance of having a pregnancy. Did IVF and was blessed to get pregnant. Lost a twin at 3.5 months. The suv was a nice token of gesture from my hubby for everything we endured to just have our one. He purchased the bigger vehicle as a reminder of the one we lost and hope to have another. A year later we were blessed with the second baby. 2nd baby was in the nicu for 2.5 months. Yes, the fancy stroller was icing on the cake for a long journey we had to parenthood. Was the fancy stroller necessary no. It did however prove that our babies are worth every penny to us. FYI that stroller was worth every penny too.
@Shannon When you saw the topic of this conversation, why did you click on it? If you are against push presents why join a conversation where women are happily discussing how people in their lives have blessed them? This is an app for women to find their villages and talk to women who are going through similar things. If you can’t relate to the topic then move along don’t make people feel bad for being blessed.
@Leah I totally agree. I had a terrible pregnancy, high risk appointments, fetal ekgs and a few other scares. We also both almost didn't make it through labor and ended up needed an emergency c section and had a hard recovery. My husband wanted to show he appreciated everything I did and understood the trauma I went through. To me it was a very thoughtful gesture
Growing a human in your body and delivering them is an amazing task and women who even attempt to do so deserve to be celebrated. I had two epidurals, a spinal tap, a couple of weeks of a hospital stay and braved with child for her 390 day nicu stay. So, I’m accepting absolutely every gift.
@Amanda @Shannon y’all are being judgmental AF
There’s no need to be so condescending towards women or so dismissive of their pregnancy journeys and lifestyle choices
Thanks for letting me know who to block!
I seriously hope you grow up for your kids sake
Hope they don’t learn to judge from you
New generation needs to learn to be kind and accepting of all people.
@Shannon I agree. It's pretentious to think you're owed a gift for birthing a child. Like, you knew wtf you were in for when you decided to have a child, or even have unprotected sex that resulted in a pregnancy, who do you think you are to say you need or want a gift for that?? 🤦🤦🤦🤦
Yes I did. But my husband hadn’t even heard of it.
@Shannon I carried his child for 9 months while he didn’t have to I gave him a son so the least he can do is give me a gift
@Shannon lol part of me feels left out then another is like it's what ever because if I didn't know about I know my kids dad definitely didn't know lol then another is like it's kinda weird but nice lol I have so many mixed emotions like I'm about to have my 4th baby and just learning about this like when did this become a thing 😅
I never got a push gift. I didn't even know that was a thing.
@Shannon a gift from your partner for giving birth
I got a new car and a necklace ☺️
I’m gonna be pushing for a push present 🤣 pun intended
My man and I are broke due to a hard pregnancy and him having to resign
He and my baby girl and my fur babies and DAd are all the gifts I need 🎁
I got a necklace with my baby’s birthstone as a you had a baby/anniversary gift
My hubby got me a designer bag
I got a charm for my necklace for each child
I got nothing hahaha 😆 😂
I've never heard of a push present?? Is this only done by people with money??
I don't think so. Alot of them are extravagant gifts but can always give within your means like any gift.
It just seems so damn extra to me... Your gift is bringing a child into the world, why should you get anything else for that?? That just seems so boujee and like moms are entitled... I don't get that...
I got a 2022 Tahoe
I got my brand new car 🤭🥰
What's a push gift
Lol oh ok never heard of it. What if you didn't push a baby out tho?
It’s a gift your husband gives to you for carrying a pregnancy and pushing a baby out of your vagina
Yes! My first was a new pair of uggs and a new place to live/ my car fixedand the second was a pair of berkinstocks, bamboo robe and a handcrafted pendent necklace
