Brocha on having a baby

Question:

I have heard in the name of R’ Aharon Kotler and others that the minhag is not to say a “hatov vehameitiv” when one has a baby boy and a “shehecheyanu” when having a baby girl. Is this the prevalent minhag?

Answer:

Many people do make a bracha, however I can’t tell you what the prevelant minhag is.

Best wishes
