The very idea of "push presents" sounds too much like a Sex and the City episode gone wrong. Don't get me wrong; there's a great sentiment behind push presents. If a man does something to recognize the emotional and physical stress of carrying a child of his own volition, it's a lovely gesture. But new mothers shouldn't let a trickle-down trend from Hollywood lead them to expect diamonds and sapphires, and new fathers shouldn't feel pressured into giving them.

The concept of the "push present" is sweeping delivery rooms all over North America. Notionally, I get it. A proud new father witnesses the love of his life enduring the miracle of birth and wants to give her something nice for her hardship/efforts/bravery/magic. But are push presents now a thing?
