    I used one during my induction with ds. It got me to 8cm before I needed gas and air then diamorphine. I'd definately used it again if I get the chance!

    It got me through the early stages of labour. Gave me something to focus on too. I was surprised how much it helped. Thought it was gonna be useless. But I was willing to try anything to help me. We all different tho but def worth a try. I will be using it again.

    Definitely recommend it. Got me to 8cm with my first. You have to use it early on though. Before you think you need it.

    I didn't either! Only just put it on level 3 when I got in the car to hospital. I'm sure there was a level 4. This time I won't be so slow to move through the levels :) I was worried first time of reaching the highest level too quickly!
