Q1: What do you mean by umbilical cord and why would I want that?

A: The little dark thing that dried up and fell off your babies belly button, we can take that and turn it into a keepsake. They can be hard to store and easy to get moldy in Japanese humidity. They are also small and easy to loose. when stored in a umbilical cord box we rarely see them and the box takes up a lot of space. The umbilical cord is what connected our babies to us in the womb, it may feel a little sad if you have it yet something happens to it. We have been told in some cultures they believe keeping your babies umbilical cord close it will keep your child close and that even in old age they will come back to you. Of course in a loving nice way.
