Maintains continuous compressing action around umbilical cord. Does not require removal.

Replaces the need for plastic cord clamps. Allergy information: Contains latex.

Umbi-Ring is an effective way for Midwives and Practitioners to constrict an umbilical cord without having to remove the device later. 

Umbi-Ring maintains continuous compressing action around the umbilical cord, until umbilical stump falls off. Umbi-Ring is sterile, inexpensive, easy to use, and provides more comfort for the baby. Umbi-Ring is also made in the USA.

Umbi-Ring consists of a latex band around two plastic pieces, forming a ring. Once the plastic pieces are separated, the band shrinks down and compresses the umbilical cord to stop blood flow. This device is similar to a product, no longer available, called the AGA cord ring. Unlike the AGA cord ring, the Umbi-Ring constricts slowly which allows it to be moved into place, momentarily and prevents possible cord laceration.

Since this product is new, it currently has an expiration of six months. Because of this shorter shelf life, we suggest you consider ordering only what you can use in a six month period.


Directions for use of the Umbi-Ring

1. Slide Umbi-Ring on hemostat. Clamp umbilical cord with hemostat, preferably once cord has become pale and limp. 2. Slide Umbi-Ring over the umbilical cord to the desired point. 3. With fingers, separate plastic ring to allow ligature to fall around the umbilical cord. * 4. Hold the ligature in place until it fully constricts. 5. DO NOT remove hemostat until ligature has completely constricted. 6. Once fully constricted, remove hemostat and trim stump of cord to desired length. *Please note, the ligature will constrict slowly allowing it to be moved to the desired point and prevent cord laceration.
