Start To finish...
Like your finger print, every umbilical cord is unique. Using medically proven histologic techniques and over 20 years of experience, we will preserve and create a series of cross sections of the life giving cord that connected you and your baby together. No two cords are alike, and no two sections the same. This is where the mystery, the beauty and the love of art begins...

3. Collect a small piece of the baby’s umbilical cord…In the delivery room, a small section of your babies umbilical cord will be taken and put in the specimen container that holds a special preservative called formalin. After 72 hours, your babies umbilical cord will be perfectly preserved and safe to ship to the lab. A prepaid shipment label will be in your kit so you can ship straight from your door or from your nearest Fed Ex drop off location.
4. TIME TO PLACE YOUR ORDER!...Once your cord arrives at our lab, we will contact you about order placement. Will this art be for your child's nursery, above your fireplace or even a large wall space in your home? You can place your order straight from our website or even over the phone. Once your order is placed, it is time for us to begin creating your art!
