Placement of relative clauses

Hi,

I'm hoping someone can provide some advice on the above subject.

Are the following sentences grammatically correct:

Polar bears have dermal bumps on the soles of their feet, which help prevent them slipping on the ice.

This huge mammal possesses razor-sharp claws on its forepaws, which help it to dig through solid ice.

I know that the convention is to place a relative clause after the noun it relates to but the prepositional phrase is throwing me out a little. Seems to read nicely  but I'm not sure it's correct.

I don't think the following sentences read as fluidly but I think they're technically correct:

Polar bears have dermal bumps, which prevent them slipping on ice, on the soles of their feet.

This huge mammal possess razor-sharp claws, which help it to dig through solid ice, on its forepaws.

Any support with this would be appreciated.

Many thanks.
