Birth Balls and Labor - How To Use Infographic

RSS

We've seen them in the gym and called them exercise balls for years.  We have even considered switching out our desk chairs for one.  Once you become pregnant they are suddenly BIRTH BALLS!  These large round items are awesome before, during and after labor.  Check out our user guide below for details!  We think they are a must for birthing mamas, doulas and childbirth educators.  Pack your hospital bag or doula bag and grab one of these and you'll be ready.  Use a ball cover to make the ball clean, soft and easy to carry.

Yes, we sell birth balls for labor!

    This is a nice handout. I was taught that a Laboring mom should NOT bounce during labor as it could cause swelling of the cervix. Thoughts?

    Birthballs are a fantastic and under rated tool for labor! Just remember 1 thing while usung them in the shower…. The following REALLY happened. .. My 1st time doula-ing at this hospital, 1st time to be met with a load of Residents (it was a University of Tennessee teaching hospital ~ yeah, iI know AND the 1st Doula they had ever seen or heard of!) and scoff my Mom was determined to birth naturally! We moved into the walk-in shower with the birthball and I was sitting on the potty making eye contact, reassuring her all the things we say to an almost exhausted Mom… That bathroom was full of steam, water wasn’t that hot it was just cold in that bathroom. 10 minutes go by; showing her how to circle roll her hips and that’s when my shoes finally told me there was 2 inches of water on that floor! Under the door, 1/2 way accross the Birth room, out that door 12 feet down the hallway! Did I mention the scariest Charge Nurse in history was running that shift? The whole circling your hips session, she was sitting on the drain! I was teased evrytime anyone saw me, always asking if I brought enough towels! *Great Godsend, the Birthball! Just always break your eye contact once in a while to see the position of the balls proximity to the drain!
