ever used a yoga ball to help get labor going?

i got one yesterday. i doesnt induce labor it does the same as walking and just gets baby more into position. it actually was kinda comfy to sit on while watching tv....he was kicking me pretty good last night and i was able to get comfy. where as on the couch or rocker when he gets antsy like that i cant.

  • I had one the last trimester and loved it! After about the 8th month, i couldn't sit on the couch comfortably either, and i was on that ball all day long!
    It didn't help with labor for me, but I loved it just the same... And when i have #2, i plan on getting another one!

  • Nothing works to bring on labor unless it was going to happen anyway. The ball does nothing unless you are already IN labor.

  • That's not inducing labor. ANd that doesn't work on everyone.
