    I used to sit on the ball at work while I charted while I was pregnant with my last baby, it felt great on my hips and back. So I thought I would love it in labor, I lasted about 3 ctx and then made the nurse take it completely out of the room, I didn't even want to look at it LOL. It hurt so bad. As far as pts I have had about 50/50 results out of the small number who were willing to try it.

    I put one in the shower with the mom the other night. She sat in there for an hour with the hot water running over her back. She loved it!! It's those little things we do that makes such a huge difference!
