Trend Alert: Umbilical Jewelry is the Latest Trend Among New Mothers

Are you wondering what to do with your newborn’s umbilical cord? Well instead of putting it in a safe place or in your newborn’s keepsake box why not make it into a piece of jewelry that you can wear every day? That’s right, you heard right. The latest trend among new mamas is sending your child’s umbilical cord away and having it made into a piece of jewelry.

It may sound crazy and hard to believe that there’s a market for such of thing but we found out there is multiple jewelers that will do such a thing. Why not right? Women today are saving their placenta from birth and making it into capsules for postpartum recovery.

Ruth Avra, 39, a trained metalsmith and jeweler is one of the many skilled jewelers out there making umbilical jewelry. After the birth of her son in 2012, Avra thought of the idea and started designing the latest trendy keepsake jewelry.

Ava’s friend gave the jeweler the stump of her baby’s umbilical cord in 2011. At the time, Avra didn’t know what to do with it so she held onto it. “She asked me to make something out of it, but I had no idea what to do,” Avra recalled. But it wasn’t until her son was born a year later that she had that ‘Aha’ moment.

Avra was mesmerized at the vast difference between her son’s umbilical cord and her friend’s. “These are really organic pieces—no two are anywhere alike,” she says. Avra got to work making a necklace for herself and her friend. She loved the challenge of the unique differences between the two that forced her creativity flow to go beyond her bounds. Before she knew it, “suddenly I was making them for all my friends,” she says.

Avra now sells them online and has even expanded her line and now does jewelry with your child’s baby teeth, baby’s first hair clippings, hospital bracelets, and cremated ashes.

Hilary Duff Welcomes Daughter

Hilary Duff Welcomes Daughter with Boyfriend Matthew Koma

Hilary Duff’s little princess has arrived! The Lizzie McGuire alum announced on Instagram Monday that she and boyfriend Matthew Koma welcomed their daughter on October 25.

Duff, 31, posted a precious picture of herself holding her daughter with Koma by his two girls side. “Banks Violet Bair this little bit has fully stolen our hearts! She joined our world at home on Thursday afternoon and is absolute magic,” she wrote.

Proud new papa Koma, 31, shared the same photo on his Instagram account writing, “ We welcome a beautiful daughter, little sister, and best friend for life. Could not possibly be more grateful for our growing family and for the who makes it all possible. Cloud ten.”

The new parents revealed their baby news back in June on social media announcing they were expecting a bundle of joy of their own. Duff posted a picture of herself giving her beau a kiss on the cheek while showing off her growing belly. She wrote alongside the picture, “Guess what guys! @matthewkoma and I made a little princess of our own and we couldn’t be more excited!!!!!!”

The Younger star is also a mom to 6-year-old son Luca who she shares with ex-husband Mike Comrie. This is the first child for Duff’s musician babe.

Koma was a doting boyfriend for his pregnant girlfriend during her pregnancy. Duff gushed back in August of her beau who was going to great lengths to pacify her pregnancy cravings.

Hilary Duff documented on an Instagram story that Koma had driven around town looking for Duff’s request of Good & Plenty’s. She later showed all the sweet treats Koma had scored along the way along with the much sought out candy request.

Duff handled pregnancy like a champ embracing her body changing all through the different stages that pregnancy brings. In July the Disney star alum wrote about the wonder’s of the female body and how amazing women truly are.

“The boobs are big the belly is big the body is big. Man.. pregnancy is hard. Giving love to all mamas who make it look effortless… this journey is hard as hell and also incredibly special. Lovely to have a little life inside and to daydream of all the new adventures to come buuuut almost impossible to get my own shoes on,” she captioned a mirror selfie. “Sick of getting up 9 times a night to pee and looking at this weird body in the mirror that is not my own at the moment. Women are so bada**, this was just a note to remind myself and remind others how’s strong and beautiful you are! WE GOT THIS!

Kat Von D’s Baby Bump, Zara Tindall Reveals she Had a Second Miscarriage, and Cardi B Buys a New “Lambo”

With another week in the history books, it’s time to catch up on some of the celebrity baby news that might have snuck past you this week.  We’ll start off the roundup with Zara Tindall’s bombshell revelation:

Tindall Suffered a Second Miscarriage

Zara Tindall discussed the tragic story of how she suffered a second miscarriage just prior to the birth of her second child, Lena.  This particular miscarriage happened in 2017 during the early part of her pregnancy, but Tindall never discussed it with the public.  Tindall had already suffered her first miscarriage in 2016 

Tindall explained her decision to keep the miscarriage under wraps to The Sunday Times, “You need to go through a period where you don’t talk about it because it’s too raw”.

Zara Tindall,37, is granddaughter to Queen Elizabeth and is married to ex-rugby player, Mike Tindall.  The two welcomed their first daughter, Mia, in 2014.

Kat Von D was spotted wearing an all-black ensemble in the sweltering heat of LA.

It’s hot on the Left Coast.  Oppressively hot, some would say.  That didn’t stop expectant mama, Kat Von D, for taking off on an afternoon stroll with a friend. Keeping true to her goth roots, the former LA Ink star braved the heat in an all-black outfit accessorized with a low slung cross. Check out Von D’s growing baby bump below.

Von D is married to musician Rafael Reyes, aka Leafer Sayer, and the couple announced in May that they are expecting a boy.

Ayesha and Steph Curry Welcome a Son

NBA star Steph Curry has a new member in his family, a son!

Steph Curry announced on his Instagram on Wednesday that he and his wife Ayesha welcomed their third child, a boy named Canon W. Jack Curry. The Golden State Warrior’s star shared a picture of his new little guy writing alongside the photo, On this journey, on this quest… protect me… I’m blessed! Canon W. Jack Curry.”

July is a month of celebrations for the Curry brood. Ayesha, 29, and Steph, 30, are also parents to their two daughters Ryan Carson who turns 3 on Tuesday and Riley who turns 6 on July 19.

The new mama of three shared the first photo op of her daughters with their new baby brother via Instagram. The precious photo is a black and white of her two girls holding Canon. Ayesha captioned the photo, My heart is FULL. God has been too good to us. Our beautiful baby boy Canon W.Jack Curry 7/2/2018. He joined us earlier than we thought and we couldn’t be more excited and grateful. Family of 5!

The basketball star and his cookbook author wife did not reveal to their fans what they were having. Steph sat down with Ellen DeGeneres in February and admitted he was trying to win his wife over on the idea of waiting till they were in the delivery room to find out the sex of their third child.

“I would love to get to the delivery room and have that surprise. I’ve heard stories on both ends of finding out early, finding out when the baby was born. But she’s a planner, she wants to know,” he said.

Ayesha revealed in February on her blog that her third pregnancy had been harder than her first two. The chef admitted she had been suffering from acute morning sickness and exhaustion.

still have nausea, can’t sleep, pee every five seconds and am just so darn tired. I have what docs call Hyperemesis. This basically means the nausea, incessant sickness and exhaustion probably won’t go away.”

She went on to add, “The only silver linings here are that my itty-bitty baby is healthy and Princess Kate has suffered from the same condition during her pregnancies. Not feeling super royal though.”

Congrats Ayesha and Steph on your new team member!
