What is the difference between a yoga/exercise ball and a birthing ball?

Are they actually different?

  • The name is the main difference. Im sure that a "birthing ball" contains less air and the ability to move and bounce. But thats pretty much it!

  • I don't know for sure, but I think they're the same thing, just used for different things. At least they look the same.

  • I don't know really but I loved my birthing ball and was glad once I sat on it. It truly did make me feel so much more comfortable. I was very glad they had one in my birthing room.
