New trend has mums preserving babies' umbilical cords and turning them into jewelry

“The cords are fashioned into the design while they're still 'fresh' and then baked to dry them out,” said a Mirror article.

After incorporating hypnosis into their parenting methods, and then consuming placenta pills for their health benefits, mums are starting a new trend:
