Miracle Box - Peanut Birth Ball 50cm


Birth Balls are commonly rounded, varying in size depending on the height of the mother-to-be ranging from 55cm to 75cm, and have many benefits to mums during pregnancy, labour and post pregnancy. However, a peanut ball, is what it says, peanut shaped, and comes very much into its own during labour especially if an epidural is performed!


The peanut ball gives a more controlled, multi-directional movement; with this increased stability it provides greater confidence while aiding support in the squatting position/straddling the ball, therefore giving more balance to the mother-to-be. The ball sits comfortably between the mother's legs, aiding support and helping to open the pelvis. Varying the mother's positions with the ball encourages foetal rotation and descent. The ball has been found to be most effective to help prop open a woman's legs when she cannot use upright positions due to an epidural. The ball provides a soft, comfortable, squeezable aid during the labour process. The peanut ball has been found to be at its best when used on women who receive epidural injections to alleviate pain during pregnancy as typically a mother-to-be cannot use other proven birthing methods such as squatting or using an typical round birth ball, whereas the peanut ball due its smaller size and shape fills this gap perfectly.


How to use:


There are several different positions in which you can use the peanut ball. It is also incredible useful to help support your back and neck whilst in bed, as well as being able to lean over the ball etc.


Side laying Squat Position:


side laying possition


When you are tired and exhausted and need to rest and lay down or you have had an epidural and  you are either not allowed or able to stand, the peanut ball can be used to simulate optimal labour positions while in a resting posture, by opening the pelvis and allowing the baby room to descend and open the cervix.


Laying Squat Position:


Laying Squat Position


This position simulates a squat whilst laying down bringing your knees up and opening the hips into a squat. (similar to using stirrups), but much better and more comfortable!


Laying Lunge Position:


Laying Lunge Position


The laying down lunge can be used to open the pelvis, stretch the cervix, and help rotate baby in one direction or the other depending on which way you lay and need the baby to move.


 


Benefits of Using a Peanut Birth Ball


1. Studies** prove that the Peanut Ball lowered C-Section rates. The C-Section rate for the group of women who used the peanut ball was 13% less than for the group that did not use the peanut ball.


2. Studies** show that ladies in labour who used the peanut ball decreased the first stage of labour by nearly 90 minutes and the second stage by 23 minutes compared with a controlled group that did not use the peanut ball.


3. The Peanut Ball can be placed between the mother to be's legs in a way to open the pelvis so dramatically as to allow the baby to get into his or her best position to be born.


4. Studies** show that the use of the Peanut Ball during labour for patients with an epidural significantly reduced the length of labour.


5. The peanut birth ball gives a more controlled, multidirectional movement, therefore giving more balance to the mother.


6. The peanut ball is commonly used by women who receive an epidural. The ball sits comfortably between the patient's legs, aiding support and helping to open the pelvis. Varying the mother's position with the ball encourages foetal rotation and descent.


7. The ball helps increase the pelvic diameter and in turn, allows more room for the foetus to descend.
