Birthing Ball?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

So I want to buy a birthing ball to use at home in early labor, also just throughout the rest of the pregnancy for hip circles and other various yoga things. I went to Target today and got an exercise ball, but noticed when I got home that it specifically says "Do not use during pregnancy." Is there actually a difference between an exercise vs. yoga vs. birthing ball? If someone has one they particularly like, can you please provide a link? I just assumed it was all the same thing...

Don't worry they're all the same.  They just say that for liability reasons.

I use an exercise ball. I think they are just worried about liability issues. It's crazy these days.

Ditto the other ladies. I use an anti-burst ball from Wal-Mart.

I got the one from Target that you're probably talking about. Seems safe to me. smile.gif
