Exercise Ball Cover by Birthplace
Chances are you’ve been using an exercise ball to get your baby in to a good position for birth, you may also have heard of the many ways you can use an exercise ball during labour and birth. Using a ball during labour is considered upright labouring and can help to reduce the length of your labour.
I used a ball everyday in my third trimester. I took it to hospital with me to avoid being without a ball during labour. I recall sticking to the ball in the middle of summer and it being hard to move around the room. This cover solves both of those issues and it also makes the easier on the eye because the fabric is gorgeous.
