NOTE:  The product you are viewing is the last size we have available in this style of ball.

We have recently upgraded our balls to include an anti-burst feature and these new balls are available in three different sizes.  They can be found here: Go Mama Balance/Birthing Ball PRO

 

Balance balls are a great addition to your maternity routine and are such a versatile piece of equipment.

The Go Mama balance ball can be implemented with your safe exercise routine at any stage of your journey (see below), or as a birthing ball to support you during labour.  It’s also a great option to bob gently on when settling your little babe once they’re Earthside!

 

These balls have many great uses in maternity, but are so versatile in many exercises and other activities too including switching out with your regular chair so you’re always working on your core stability.

 

Features include:

-Available in one size: 55cm.  Refer below for size guide.

-Air pump included

-The ball is a little like a balloon when it is inflated for the first time – it takes a bit of pumping to get the full inflation.  It is fully inflated when the skin is smooth and there are no visible creases.

-Maximum weight limit 200kg

Inflating your ball for the first time

Your ball can be a little tighter to inflate the first time.  This is because it is brand new and has not been stretched or softened yet.  The ball material is a heavy-duty PVC that is designed to withstand weight and pressure.  When it is new, the material can be tight which can lead to it to not look like it can fully inflate or reach the stipulated size.  It can be a bit like blowing up a balloon for the first time in terms of stiffness, and can take a couple of uses to soften it a little.  Here are a couple of tips when inflating your ball for the first time:

  1. Inflate the ball at room temperature.  If it has been stored in a cool area, allow it to settle at room temperature before attempting to inflate it.  This will ensure the material is softer and more pliable.
  2. Inflate the ball to 80% then let it settle for 24 hours before continuing to fill it with air.
  3. Keep on pumpin’.  It can be a bit of a workout to get it inflated but you got this Mama!

 

Caring for your ball

  • Do not use on rough surfaces
  • For indoor use only
  • Keep away from sharp objects
  • Keep out of direct sunlight and away from heat sources
  • If you are planning to use it for labour and delivery, we do recommend inflating it prior (refer ‘Inflating your ball for the first time’) to ensure it is good to go when the time comes!

Pregnancy and post-partum exercises using the Go Mama Balance Ball

 

“Birthing balls can be a great tool during labour. Many of my patients use them to support them in kneeling or squatting positions. They are also comfortable to sit and bounce on gently for pain management. They can also be used during pregnancy for seated stretches”
-Irene Leahy, Women’s Health Physiotherapist

  1. Love my balance ball and supporting small businesses always feels the best!

  2. Great value for money & arrived super quickly too!

  3. I got an excercise ball which is great! But the pump that came with it broke immediately. I don’t want a new one as i have plenty of em but it might be worth checking before you send more out 🙂 thanks so much for my order though xo

  4. Great product, really happy with it. As described, good value for $$ and promptly shipped.

  5. Fast & efficient shipping! Quality of birthing ball is great. Love that it comes with its own pump. Definitely worth buying!
