After incorporating hypnosis into their parenting methods, and then consuming placenta pills for their health benefits, moms are starting a new trend:
Keeping their babies’ umbilical cords and turning them into jewelry and other accessories.
“The cords are fashioned into the design while they’re still ‘fresh’ and then baked to dry them out,” said a Mirror article.
Although the trend isn’t yet widely known, it’s easy to see it gaining more popularity, especially in certain communities.
Here are a few things umbilical cords have been transformed into:
