They were once seen as an American tradition but the popularity of baby showers is soaring in Britain, according to a poll.
Two thirds of expectant mothers now plan to treat themselves to a pre-birth party.
The average mother-to-be can expect to receive gifts worth £150, according to the study by gift company Me to You.
These Brit mommies “plan to*treat* themselves” to a shower? Good heavens, ladies, if you are going to assimilate an American custom, at least eat the meat and spit out the bad etiquette bones.
