Birth-ease 75 cm birthing ball and pump - we're all pumped up and ready for the baby!,
This review is from: Birth-ease Birth Ball & Pump (75cm)
We bought this birthing ball for the upcoming event - and I have to say that I am very impressed with it. The ball comes complete with a reasonably efficient hand pump that had it blown up in no time at all, two plugs and instructions for exercises and positions that the ball can be used for. The two plugs is an excellent attention to detail!
The ball itself is made from a special material that if punctured will allow the ball to deflate slowly, not burst in a big bang. This is a reassuring claim, though obviously we have not tested it! The ball claims to be able to take a weight of 300 kg without bursting, all I can say is that I am about half of that and it feels totally secure when I sit on it. The plug fits in securely and snugly and shows no sign of popping. We have had the ball inflated for over a week and my wife has used it regularly in that time, so far there has been no sign of any loss of air.
The outer skin of the ball is a non-slip material, another sign of attention to detail by the manufacturers. There is one odd thing which doesn't seem to be mentioned in the product details or other reviews - the ball has a strong and distinct aroma of mint chocolate! After a day our front room smells of after eight mints, which is definitely emanating form the ball! It's a very calming smell, and whether through purpose or serendipity it is another feature that just makes me like the ball all the more!
5 stars, excellent product.
