That’s a thing?!

Earlier this week, Rochelle gave birth to her second daughter with her husband Marvin Humes, formerly of the boyband JLS.

She decided to have her placenta made into pills, a pretty common practice these days – but also had her dried umbilical cord fashioned into the word ‘love’ and framed. Oh, OK.

After being very curious I took the plunge, so excited to feel the benefits..Thanks so much Danielle @placentaplus 👸🏽💝

This is very much a thing, apparently.

Rochelle shared the image with her one million Instagram followers, and well, people are a bit baffled.

“Feeling inspired to make a picture out of my kids’ toenails,” said one Instagram commenter.

Some mothers agreed with her decision to commemorate “the cord that supplied the baby with everything it needed to survive 9 months inside”, and that the art was a good supply of “post-birth energy”.

The reaction can mostly be summed up in this comment, however:

There are lots of bodily functions etc that have helped create and bring a beautiful baby safely into the world, but we don’t have to frame all the gory bits.

Well then: Are you on board the good ship Umbilical Cord Art?
