A push present is a gift a father gives to the mother to mark the occasion of her giving birth to their child.
Or, in real terms an Olympic medal for making it to the finish line!
I joke but really after nine months of your body not being your own, it sure is nice on the day your bundle of joy arrives - you get something that is just for you.
In practice the present may be given before or after the birth, or even in the delivery room. After the birth of Miss Marnie I received a beautiful Baby Bumble Bee necklace - as my bump was often referred to as baby b!
It's so special to me, is loaded with unique memories and something I hope to be able to pass down to Miss M to treasure one day. Just like my grandmother who has passed down her eternity ring (traditionally what was given after the birth of your first child) to me in my early twenties.
So, when I was invited to view the new Circle of Life collection from SWAG I was interested to see what push presents - or baby baubles they had on offer.
And, I have to say I was very impressed, as not only have this boutique family jewellers created a unique collection of beautiful jewellery to mark this special moment - they've announced they are one of the six official partners with the government initiative Your Parent Guide.
