Birthing balls are an excellent addition to your birth & new mum toolkit: a vinyl exercise ball is in fact specifically designed and safe for use during pregnancy, labour as well as post-birth. Benefits of use in the lead-up to labour include reducing lower back pain, practicing getting into different birthing positions, and even aiding you in changing the position of your baby in the latter stages of pregnancy. When used early in labour, birthing balls can also be excellent tools to help you manage those first contractions. And after birth, your birthing ball will be the perfect piece of equipment to ease your body back into shape while you are still healing.
