Birthing balls are a great way of coping in labor and birth, and can also provide comfort during the pregnancy.
Swaying side to side or in a circle or even lightly bouncing helps stretch the body and helps move the baby in a good position.
Leaning onto it can provide relief of back labor.
Just sitting can give extra support to your pelvic muscles. All these things combined, makes for a shorter, more efficient labor, makes mom more comfortable and makes the passage easier for the baby.
What’s also great is you can use it postpartum to help colicky babies, and provide possibly the only comfortable position post delivery from the episiotomy or hemorrhoids!
FitBalls are made of burst resistant material that will slowly deflate if punctured. All sizes have been tested for weights up to 600lbs- all the qualities of a great birthing ball.
