Birth balls are an excellent addition to your pregnancy toolkit, and you can use them regularly even before the labour process. Benefits of using them in the lead-up to labour include reducing that pesky lower back pain if used during exercise, practicing getting into different birthing positions, and even aiding you in changing the position of your baby in the latter stages of pregnancy.
During early labour, birthing balls can be excellent tools to help you manage those first contractions. After birth, you might find the birthing ball to be a comfortable place to sit while feeding, particularly if your body is still healing. At PregnancyandBaby.ie, we stock birthing balls from Miracle Box.
