Anyone else use a birthing ball?

did it make your contractions come on stronger/more frequent? did it help bring on labor? ive been having very uncomfortable contractions for over a week now and the last few days with no breaks in between them (other than intensity lessening) last i was checked i was 2cm and 70% effaced. induction in about 6 days so im trying to get things moving!

  • My first pregnancy I used a birthing ball while I was in labor and it helped ease the contractions a lot but with my second pregnancy it made the contractions way worse. I never used a birthing ball to get labor rolling though.

  • I used one, at some points it was the only thing that made my back labor feel better. it can also help the baby turn if you are in back labor.
