Photographic Instructions for Pregnancy & Labour
Detailed guide shows you how to use your Birthing Ball – Use your Birth Ball in Pregnancy:

- for progressing labour and dilation of the neck of the uterus

Size Matters! Select 65cm or 75cm
A birthing ball needs to be bigger and firmer than a standard gym ball that you would use just to exercise with. When sitting on the ball, with your feet flat on the floor, your hips should be raised approx 10cm above your knees. This raised sitting position brings the weight of the baby forward, giving relief from back pain and general discomfort felt in pregnancy. This position also keeps the pelvis open and pressure off your lower back during labour and contractions.
Select the correct size for your height:
65cm: Up to 5’8 (Up to 173cm)
75cm: 5’8 and over (173cm & over)
We do not stock a 55cm ball, if you are under 5’4, we recommend you inflate the 65cm birth ball to a 60cm diameter.
