Do you have a new mom or mom to be that is expecting multiples? It can be a very exciting and stressful time in a woman’s life to be expecting a child. Add in more than one baby – you have a rollercoaster of emotion!
Carrying multiple babies is harder on a woman’s body than the normal bodily stress of a single baby. The body has to work overtime just to keep up with the demands of nurturing multiple babies. The extra weight is a burden and on top of that, most babies from a multiple pregnancy are born early.
If anyone deserves a push present, it is the mother of twins, triplets, or those quads. It is becoming more common to hear of multiples these days as more people are using fertility procedures that result in multiple babies.
‘Regular’ push presents are all suitable for women who are giving birth to multiples. There are suggestions for gifting a baby bauble to a mom that is having twins (or more) from some dads, many like to give a small gift for each baby. The idea is that the woman is going through double (or triple, etc) the effort of other moms, so why not gift that many more gifts?
This is a sweet idea that can be worked into almost any gift idea. Rings can have the birthstone of each baby, earrings can be created with birthstones, or mom can have double the amount of meals pre-prepared for her, double the gift certificates, or whatever else strikes your fancy. A push present doesn’t have to be gifted before the babies are born, you can wait until after the blessed event and take the new mother out on the town once she has recovered and the babies can be left with a sitter.
When considering a gift for a mom that is having or has just had multiple babies, be as creative as you can. Don’t restrict yourself to jewelry, there are many things that a mom with several newborns will appreciate. One of the best gifts? Your time! Free time is something that parents of newborns, even just one baby, are short on.
It isn’t necessary to give more than one gift. In fact, it isn’t even required to give any gift to the mother. However, something that is just for mom is a wonderful concept. Many women love jewelry and what better way for mom to look back on the birth of her child than to have a reminder she can wear every day?
While some people may believe that buying two (or more) pieces of jewelry for a woman that has multiples babies is taking push presents too far. A very valid argument to this is: each piece can be given to the child when they grow up and have children of their own. A push present isn’t just a passing fad, it can be turned into a family heirloom that reaches down through many branches of the family tree.
