Umbilical Cord Dream Symbol


Umbilical Cord – The umbilical cord is the crucial organ through which an unborn baby receives all its nutrition during pregnancy. It is the vital and life-giving connection between the mother and the baby. Dreaming of the umbilical cord indicates a deep connection with the person indicated in the dream, and a sense of dependency.

As the unborn baby is completely dependent on its mother through the umbilical cord for its very life, you feel completely dependent on the person you dream of being connected to via an umbilical cord. This dream symbol may also be indicative of an unhealthy level of dependency, especially if you dream of being your current age and having an umbilical cord. This throws into sharp relief the fact that you are not an unborn baby, and ought to be taking care of yourself rather than depending so much on others. For fetus, see Fetus. For uterus, see Uterus.
