Fear of children which leave the nest Did you see the umbilical cord in the dream? Were there any problems? Did you allow it reluctantly? Perhaps this dream refers to adult children who leave their home, or some other elements which slip away from you in your life.
Courage to be free Umbilical cord means the wish to be free from inhibitions and outdated connections, just to make yourself independent. It is a sign of an inward courage.
