If you are pregnant, why have a birthing/exercise ball?
Unless there are medical reasons to avoid it, pregnant women can and should try to exercise moderately for at least 30 minutes a day, 3-4 times a week. Birthing Balls are great for relieving discomfort during pregnancy. They provide a firm, yet soft place to sit. They also force good posture, allowing for decreased straining of your muscles. Using the birthing ball throughout pregnancy will keep the deep supportive muscles of the spine in shape and help stimulate postural reflexes. The Birthing ball has many uses in the later stages of pregnancy when sitting can become very uncomfortable and getting up and down from a chair becomes increasingly hard.
