This beautiful umbilical cord was 81cm!!! I had to twist it around itself, weaving it into a smaller final shape. It was magnificent. Creating a cord keepsake is something that I LOVE to do. The connection of baby to placenta, placenta to mother and often the partner/co parent will cut the cord, releasing baby from one world and guiding into the next. There are many traditions and beliefs when it comes to baby and placenta finally separated and all are absolutely perfect
All that time maintaining a pregnancy, supplying baby with everything it needs and after the ‘birth day’ a placenta can still offer so much. It may help balance you emotionally in your postpartum recovery, may help to increase your breastmilk supply, mothers have also reported little to no afterbirth pains after subsequent births

What did you ALMOST call your baby?
Up before the sun this morning getting this one done for a gorgeous couple!!! The Dad said to me “I birth cattle all the time but watching your wife do that is something else”
I’ll take it that he meant that in a good way 😂 no, it truly would be hard watching your significant other go through that and the feelings of “helplessness.” Yup! Women are pretty amazing! We truly appreciate all you Daddy’s too
One photo of this beauty is not enough! A section of hypercoiling and furcate insertion (like a fork) but most excitingly a YOLK SAC (Em’s favourite). A yolk sac is what nourishes baby in the early weeks of pregnancy. A few weeks later, the placenta will be fully formed and will take over the transfer of nutrients to the embryo. It’s the outer layer of this sac that develops into the placenta. Can you see why Em loves them?!?
