Would you be tempted to make some umbilical cord art?

Mums are making the most amazing keepsakes from the entire umbilical cord...


Here at MFM HQ, we don’t miss many parenting and birth trends.


Recently we shared a story about mums who are making jewellery out of their breast milk and small parts of the umbilical cord and also revealed that even more parents are burying the placenta.

And loads of you told us you loved both these ideas.

But now it seems some mums are going one step further and are using the entire umbilical cord to create some of the most incredible baby keepsakes we’ve ever seen.

Mums are doing all sorts of things with the cords, and sharing the results on Instagram.

Apparently if you work with them when they’re fresh you can shape them pretty easily.

We’ve seen cords shape into hearts, the word Love and the baby’s name. Awwww….

We reckon these are pretty inventive and a very cool way to commemorate the birth of your little one in a highly unusual and unique way.

What do you think?

Would you be tempted to do something like this with the umbilical cord after the birth of your little one?

Perhaps you already did – if so we’d love to see the pics. Show us over on Facebook!
