The phenomenon of the "Girl Kiddush", in celebration of a new baby of the female persuasion, has been around for quite some time, but the contention that a girl will not find a shidduch if she hasn't had one held in her honor, is a more recent development. In fact, if anybody can cite me the source for this position, I'd love to hear it.
In any event, since nowadays we appear to be concerned about the shidduch prospects of children from conception, a kiddush seems de rigueur.
Last Shabbos, we had the zechus to attend a kiddush in gratitude to Hakodosh Boruch Hu for the birth of our newest granddaughter, Tzipora Chaya. I prepared, among other things, rainbow cookies, "pink & whites" and the lovely chocolate truffles you see above.
I'm contemplating compiling a list of segulas here ("Segula Sundays"?)with sources so that we can all begin to separate the wheat from the chaff together. (Did I ever tell you about the pushy, strange lady who, while in labor, approached me on the postpartum ward at the hospital after I had just given birth to my baby? And how upon
grilling me discovering that I had a 2 hour labor insisted on davening certain tefillos while all the while placing her hands firmly on my (postpartum) belly??!?!! And how she "shush shushed" MY DOCTOR away when he had the "audacity" to interrupt her in order to examine me - his patient?!? No? Well, remind me some other time...)
