what parents are saying
My hip was out of place for the entirety of both my pregnancies and stretching on this ball made it feel so much better. It was also great during labor and for bouncing my kids after they were born. (Oct 01, 2014)
Used it for labor (so much more comfortable) and was a lifesaver for my daughter. Best way to sooth an unhappy baby, and a must for a sensory-seeking one. Bonus: best quad muscles of my life!

Used a fitness ball during my last labor and it was great! A nice way to keep moving and work through contractions without being on your feet for lengths of time. Wish I had had one for my first!

This was the ONLY way I could get comfortable at the end of my pregnancy. It was also the only comfortable position for me during labor (sitting on my fitness ball). I would highly recommend!

Every pregnant woman needs one. This helps back pain, helps to move baby’s head down to dilate your cervix, and it’s great when baby arrives. The gentle bouncing but my baby to sleep every time.

Both blessing and curse. Bouncing helped baby get right to sleep but after awhile it was the only way he'd sleep! We've pretty much transitioned him out of that but we still use if absolutely needed.

Used this twords the end of my pregnancy because my hips hurt so bad and it was so much pressure. This was such a relief to sit on! I would sit and rock, swirl. Great for getting baby into positoin
