When I gave birth to my first two babies I had never even heard of a push present. But while pregnant with my third this past year it was a subject that seemed to be up for much debate. Some people seemed to think that a present given to the mother was over the top and that the baby is the ultimate gift. Others say some token of thanks and something to remember the pregnancy and birth would be much appreciated.
You may remember my recent birth story. It didn’t go how anyone would have thought. After days of labor, my water finally broke in the morning and we knew our little boy would be born soon. Since he didn’t arrive until 9:40 pm, I had a lot of time where I couldn’t eat. My mom brought some homemade cookies to the hospital which my husband very much appreciated. He promised to save me one and I chuckled, “Is that my push present?” It became a running joke that a cookie would be my special gift after childbirth, besides the beautiful baby of course.
While I joked about it and didn’t expect anything at all, if my husband had shown the forethought to present me with a meaningful gift after I brought our child into the world, I would have absolutely loved it. It isn’t about expecting or requiring a gift because that would lose all its meaning. It is about someone else understanding the significance of what is to go through pregnancy and childbirth and presenting a special gift, just because they wanted to and for no other reason.
If you are looking to celebrate the mother after the birth of a child with a push present, Juno Lucina has the The Original Push Gift. The only push gift with a true symbolic meaning. The company name comes from Juno Lucina, the Roman goddess of childbirth and the jewelry design symbolizes the hands of Juno Lucina cradling the heads of mother and child. Isn’t the design beautiful?
I received The Signature Pendant which demonstrates a deep appreciation for a woman’s experience during the pregnancy period, from conception to birth. This top, luxury quality gift is manufactured in America and only natural diamonds are used.
In beautiful packaging, the interior of the outerbox is inscribed with a beautiful message to the new mother.
This gift is presented to you
by a loved one for your
strength throughout the
journey of pregnancy.
This is a time for you to feel special, to feel appreciated, and to feel loved…
…Wear this symbol always & remember this incredible
moment that will resonate
in your heart forever.
Also included is a Certificate of Authenticity and interior box which cradles the Juno Lucina piece.
I received mine in white gold but yellow gold is also available. I was surprise by the high quality of the chain and the exquisite pendant. Typically the chains I’ve received on necklaces, even from jewelers, are fragile in nature. While I wish the clasp where a bit bigger, I can put the necklace on myself and don’t have to worry about the chain breaking. This is even more important when I’m wearing it around little hands which love to grab anything and everything.
I love the simplicity and the timeless design, perfecting for handing down generations. It is a necklace that will go with absolutely everything and for any occasion or no occasion at all. I am proud to wear this necklace as a symbol of the journey I undertook through pregnancy and childbirth and the continuing adventure as a mother. If that isn’t a reason to celebrate, I don’t know what is.
The Signature Pendant in 1/10ctw is available for $299 with other options available depending upon your budget and desired diamond size. Other jewelry items including bracelets and earrings are also available and even custom couture pieces are offered.
