Birth Ball Tips
Choosing the right size birth ball:
- If you’re 5’ 8″ or shorter, use a 55 cm ball
- If you’re 5’ 9″or taller, over 200 pounds use a 65 cm ball.
- If you are athletic and are used to using a ball you can use a 75 cm
- When you’re seated on the ball, your knees should be level with your hips.
- The firmer the ball the harder it will be to balance on it. During pregnancy, you might want to consider using a larger, softer ball.
