Umbilical Cord

The umbilical cord can have associations with the mother. This was your first way of being nourished and can symbolize feeling a connection to life that allows you to feel fulfilled. Having a baby usually portrays how you are ‘giving birth’ to a new side of yourself and the umbilical cord is both, what connects these sides of yourself and how they are nurtured. It can also represent the traits adopted from your mother and how they are currently influencing you.
