There are two great quality makes of birthing ball in our range. The Sissel and Sissel Securemax. The Sissel Securemax inflatable ball is burst resistant up to 150kg, the Sissel exercise ball burst resistant up to 75kg.
You can sit, gently lie, or exercise on a pregnancy ball to reduce back pain during your pregnancy. A pregnancy ball is often more comfortable to sit on than a chair during pregnancy.
If your baby is positioned in a posterior (back-to-back) position, adopting an upright, forward-leaning position onto your birthing ball can encourage your baby to switch around into the correct position. Pregnancy balls are often recommended by midwives to help reduce pain during the early stages of pregnancy.
The Sissel birthing ball is made to high safety standards. It is burst proof up to 75 kg as a dynamic weight and can handle a static weight up to 500 kg. The Sissel birthing ball comes with full inflation and care instructions and is latex and phthalate free.
N.B. This product does not come with a pump included. If you do not have a exercise ball pump you will need to buy one separately.
Not sure which birthing ball you should buy?
It is important to make sure that you buy the right birthing ball for your height. A ball this is too low could do the opposite job cause you to round your lower back which can contribute to back pain! Not good at all.
When sitting or exercising it is important to make sure your hips are positioned level or preferably, slightly higher than your knees (similar to when you are sitting on a chair) Because of this your ball will need to be correct for your height. The ranges below are a guide for you to help select the right exercise ball first time round:
4FT 8IN TO 5FT 5IN (140-165CM) – 55CM BALL
5FT 6IN TO 6FT (165-185CM) – 65CM BALL
OVER 6FT (185CM ) – 75CM BALL
