They were the straps that held the monitor in place as the naughty monkey decided to go to the loo inside before I had started in labour and my waters broke so he had to be monitored all te way through the dilation process and the 3.5 hr of pushing (intensely enough for me to strain my chest muscles) but he was in such an awkward position he needed suction in the end. So much for a water birth or active birth that I wanted, but he came and he is wonderful if a little tiring. We don't want to send him back anyway, love him to the ends of the earth x
