  • No I didn't but I also didn't do it natural so maybe I'm not the one to ask! Good Luck :)

  • An exercise ball- yep, loved it. I still prefer to sit on one when I am at a desk, better for posture. Great for moving into comfortable positions, and helping the baby descend. About $10 @ walmart

  • I used it, but it really didn't help baby come down during labor. I assisted my best friends delivery, she brought hers to the hospital and didn't even use it.

  • I have never used for for labor but I have one and I sit on it daily. :) I do recommend them as OPTIONS for all my friends and clients. Some women love using them, some dont.
