Choose the correct size for you: 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 ball for your height: 55cm: Under 5’2 (Under 155cm) 65cm: 5’2 to 5’8 (155 to 173cm) 75cm: 5’8 and over (173cm & over)
