With numerous reported injuries and even some deaths, The Doctors ask if gender reveal parties have gone too far?
There have been reports of homemade bombs, plane crashes, guns, wildfires and the use of wild animals (like alligators!) associated with gender reveal parties.
Mom Jenna, who had the first viral gender reveal party back in 2008, says her celebration only involved cake and colored icing. She feels the extreme versions of the parties are "completely crazy." She tells when she first began hearing about parties going awry, like the one that caused the forest fire, she felt bad and as though she had a hand in it.
"I think there's a much more safe way to do what they are doing," she tells The Doctors.
Attorney and psychologist Dr. Lisa Strohman explains why people might be going to such extremes when they share the gender of their babies with loved ones.
"Social media has created this narcissistic culture... it says, 'You really don't exist unless you have a following,'" she says, encouraging people to celebrate, but to focus on the health and well-being of the mom, baby and their loved ones, and not worry about the number of likes you might get.
The Doctors note, that ultimately, the gender of a baby is irrelevant.
