To dream about an umbilical cord represents our ties to a relationship, problem, or situation. You may feel that you have to be with someone or that someone doesn’t want to let go of you. You may have anxiety about being on your own and supporting yourself.
Alternatively, an umbilical cord may symbolize maternal ties. You may be too emotionally bonded with your mother.
Negatively, an umbilical cord may reflect feelings about being stuck with a problem. Feeling stuck or associated to someone else’s negative behavior.
To dream of a umbilical cord that nobody will cut for you may reflect a problem situation that you feel you have to deal with all on your own.
Example: A woman dreamed of having a baby and noticing her husband being unwilling to help her cut the cord. In waking life she began chastising her teenage son for his disrespectful behavior and felt that her husband was embarrassing her by not being supportive of her. The uncut cord represented how she felt stuck dealing with her son on her own
