How About This Push Present? Thanks For Having My Baby, Now Go To Fitness Camp!Stephanie Precourt
I don’t even know what I really think about “Push Presents”- gifts like expensive jewelry given to moms (mostly the rich and famous: 10 Celeb Mom’s Extravagant Push Presents) who just gave birth. For example, Mariah Carey’s push present was a $12,000 diamond and sapphire necklace. Personally I’ve felt my baby was a good enough reward after nine months of pregnancy and a day of labor and then pushing them out. But maybe that’s just me? I’d rather wear my baby than a fancy necklace.
Premier Fitness Camp is promoting a “Body Back” package for new moms as the perfect Push Present. Forget the diamonds, they tell dad. She should start thinking about losing that baby weight STAT!
Um, no. This would not be an acceptable push present if I were in the business of accepting push presents. My exact thoughts are not appropriate for reader consumption. What kind of message are we sending new moms?
But! At $4,550 for 7 days, new mothers can shed the baby weight fast with personal trainers, nutritionists, chef-prepared meals, and even a Belly-Bandit to regain that pre-pregnancy figure. You know, I’m almost kind of liking the idea of going away to a resort and getting the help I need to lose weight if I ask for it and after a reasonable amount of time has passed post-partum. And again, let it be her idea, dads. Or really, save a few thousand dollars- you’re gonna need it- a bouquet of flowers and that beautiful baby is probably just enough. When and if she’s ready to start working off any baby weight that she wants to lose, she’ll let you know.
What do you think of push presents: ridiculous or heck yes! ? Would you be hip to the idea of receiving a Body Back Fitness Program as a gift after you just gave birth?
