    (Barring the rather unsuccessful purchase of a doppler :lol: )

    Is a birthing ball :cheer: :lol:
    It's the biggest one I've seen (75cm) so I snapped it up, I know it seems early to be buying it, but I'll be using it to ease my hip and back ache and to improve my posture :D

    It had better turn up!

    my registra told me to get a gym/birth ball to help with the spd and si joint

    he said , just balancing on the ball it self build tummy mucsles which then hold your back and pelvis better :D

    Is there any difference between gym balls and birth balls?
    If not I already have a gym ball (that my mum gave me about a year ago and I've used once!)

    Not really, the only one I've found is that birth balls are bigger

    Gym Balls are about 50 / 55cm and birthing balls about 65 - 75 cm (depending on where you get them from)
