The moments leading up to the birth of a child can be exciting, tough and altogether magical.
motherhood is a life changing event, but it’s not always easy. Labor can be one of the most exhausting things you will ever do (besides actually raising the kid!)
Pregnant women often look for any tips and tricks to make labor easier and less painful.
Enter, The Birth Ball.
One of the oldest tricks in the book is Using a birthing ball. Birthing balls have been used by doulas and midwives for years to help with labor pains, contractions, and getting the baby into the optimal positions for labor.
What is a birthing ball and what are the benefits?
- Before Giving Birth: Using The Birth Ball for exercise is a crucial part of the months leading up to labor. Benefits range from reduced back pain to correcting the position of the baby in the womb.
- During Labor: Birthing Balls can help during labor to help with pain and contractions and position the baby.
- After Giving Birth: The weeks after birth can still be painful and using a birthing ball can greatly reduce the recovery time. It can also help you get your body back in shape by strengthening your core and abdomen.
The Birth Ball Birthing Kit comes with an 18 page trimester specific guide with tons of information and pictures showing you exactly the Birthing Ball exercises you need every step of the way. We have found that in those hours of labor its not reasonable to be searching the internet for exercises to help with labor, so we put it all together for you!
Safety is a top concern at The Birth Ball. Our products are built extra thick with mom and baby in mind. They are made of eco friendly 16p free PVC and are 1400g. This is thicker than most exercise balls on the market today. The outside of the ball is non slip with special rings to grip the floor to make sure it wont slide out from under you. The Birth Ball also includes non slip socks for extra grip on those slick hospital floors.
– Birthing Ball Size
We have put together a birthing ball size guide based on opinions of doulas and midwives, and more importantly feedback from mothers like you. Try these tips:
Sit on your birth ball, and place your feet flat on the floor in front of you. Your hips should be either exactly even with your knees, or a little higher- approximately 5-8 centimeters higher, according to experts.
A good rule of thumb is 5’8 and under choose the 65 cm birth ball, while 5’9 and taller go with the 75cm birth ball.
