First of all, let me thank you all for your posts and birth stories. As a first time mom, reading this board has been very important as I imagine my ideal birthing experience. Now on to my question-
Has anyone had experience using a "peanut ball" during labor and delivery? If so, I would love to hear how you used it and if it was useful to you.
One of the nurses on my hospital tour recommended them and cited one study that suggests the use of the peanut ball reduces the number of hours in labor and the c-section rate. I'd like to purchase one myself, but would like recommendations about what size and brand to get (Amazon has several brands in sizes ranging from 40 to 70 cm).
