    I started usig mine around 30weeks but religiously since 36 weeks. It is supposed to encourage baby into a good birth position and move down into pelvis!

    That's what I'm worried about too. Inflated mine last night and want to start using now, but worried it might start things off too soon...

    We started or NCT classes last week and hot to use the balls... :). They weren't selling them though, but I think you can buy them on their online shop. I just bought a cheap gym ball from argos (£6.99) which seems just as good! X
