Cord Rings

There was an earlier thread on this, but I can't find a video that works on the darn things, so I am hoping some of you have pictures of them in use? I am talking about the flexible rubber rings that are used now for homebirth instead of the hard plastic clamps. Thanks!

This actually pretty darn cool!! I bet it looks better than the clamp and not all squishy like when they take it off.

Re: Cord Rings

My midwife used one on my son. it kind of reminded me of tying off a balloon? His stump ended up falling off at 3.5 days, and I don't know if it had to do with delayed clamping or the cord ring or a combination of both, but I liked having the ring on vs. a clamp.

Sorry, it worked for me. Hopefully someone else will have pics. I can take pics, but not until close to Christmas.
