Umbilical cord and piercing
Posted on: 08/28/2007
is it true that if you hit your umbilical cord by piercing your belly button the wrong way might result of not having a baby in the future?
Our belly buttons are where our own umbilical cord was connected to our mother before we were born. The umbilical cord of a baby is connected to the placenta, which is inside the amniotic sac, which is inside a woman's uterus. If you get your belly button pierced it will have nothing to do with you having a baby in the future.
