    Question safe and effective gym bal usage to encourage and use during labour

    Just after some recommended postions to encourage bubs down and to use during labour.

    Recently got a ball to help ease back ache from sitting on the couch and at the computer.

    Would like to knowhow to use it effectively and safely during the last weeks of preg

    thanks

    Hi Zennie, I'm not sure about fitballs in particular, but I'd think any position where your legs are apart to encourage your hips to widen would be good. I've heard bouncing in that position can be good? *Someone correct me if I'm wrong there!*
    Also, if you sit (on the ball or otherwise) and lean forwards against something (I used to do this straddling a chair and leaning against the back of it) again with your legs apart, this will encourage bubs to face towards your back.
