31 Amigurumi in October - October 6

The Ubume, or childbirth woman, is a type of yokai or ghost, which is the spirit of a mother who died in childbirth or died before making sure her children were provided for. In some stories, the Ubume will buy sweets for her still living children with money that later turns to dead leaves. While in others, the Ubume will lead a living human to her child so that it can be properly cared for.
