I just had my first baby 2 days ago without perineal tear
Baby was 3.06kg. Although I had a very slight vaginal laceration but absolutely no injury to my perinum. My midwife was wonderful too in guarding the area but I think the aniball did its job. But I think the price should be reviewed as its a bit expensive
My wife credits the aniball exercises with making her birth much easier
product quality was good however I think £70 was expensive for what it actually is. instructions were clear enough to follow and I think it did truly help prepare my perineum!
thank you for your review. We're happy Aniball helped you.
Regarding the price - we would be happy to lower the price, but the current situation is unfortunate. All costs are rising - materials, people, compliance, etc. Aniball is made from specialised bio-compatible silicon (that can also be used for in-body implants), which is not cheap.
Moreover, the UK market is much more expensive for us now than it was a few years ago. There are new additional costs - the UK now has its own regulatory framework, the product requires a separate medical device registration and representative in the UK, new customs fees, the value of £, etc.
We're trying the best we can to hold the price at least. We don't want Aniball to become a luxury product - our philosophy is to make it available to as many women as possible. We genuinely try to optimise every cost in our supply chain to keep the price steady, if not lower it a bit in the future.
Unfortunately only got to try this once but after first use mucus plug showed and I did not fully use it.packaging great but can’t confirm it practical use adds value
thank you, and let me clarify here a bit, please. Exercising with Aniball does not cause women to lose their mucus plug. You can also use the product after you have lost your mucus plug. It can be used until your water breaks or contractions start. We always recommend disinfecting the product according to the manual.
Many thanks for the review, and we wish you and your family only the best :)
I thought this would be just another 'recommended' item for mothers to waste money on, but I was wrong! This is amazing, exercises are simple and prepare you well for childbirth. The focus on control and breathing has helped me feel much calmer and more confident in my ability to give birth
