Rather than the infant being considered a replication of the mother and an extension of her body, the fetus started to be seen as separate from the mother. The yokai ubume was conceived through various means of social and religious influence. It is also said that if one does end up hugging the baby, hugging the baby with its face facing the other way would result in not being bit. In Japan, they would often wear a blood-stained koshimaki, embrace children, and chase after people who accompany them. In the Iki region of Nagasaki Prefecture , they are called "unme" or "uume," and they occur when a young person dies or when a woman dies from difficult childbirth, and they would sway back and forth before disappearing, having the appearance of a creepy blue light. The ubume's blood-soaked appearance is thought to be because in feudal society, the continuation of the family was considered important, so pregnant women who died were believed to fall into a hell with a pond of blood.
