Dangerous - it burst on day 1 of use
on 3 December 2013
I am 38 weeks pregnant and bought the ball as a birthing ball, to aid with active labour. I followed the instructions. Blowing it up fully. Leaving it for some hours to allow the rubber to stretch. Then pumping it up further. I did not sit on it on the first day I owned it, other than to confirm the size suited my height. I then sat on it for about 1 hour on day 2 and it burst whilst I was sitting on it. Splitting along 50% of its circumference. At 38 weeks pregnant I think this is VERY DANGEROUS. I am 74kg (11stone, 9pounds) now I am pregnant) so hardly excessively over weight. At any rate, the ball does not come with a weight limit warning.
