The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists says 80% of women experience tearing during labor and first time mums are at risk of severe perineal tears.

How can this be prevented?
Childbirth is primarily about women, and her intuition & readiness for childbirth itself. Unfortunately, this is being extremely challenged due to modern age lifestyle barriers that prevent women to be fully connected to her pelvic floor & intuition. 


So how can Aniball naturally prepare and support women during these moments?

Aniball is a proprioceptive aid to help women feel and understand their own bodies, and listen to their intuition. It helps to discover the pelvic floor and find out how to work with it effectively in the context of the breath. For example by allowing the woman to find the most comfortable birthing position.

Aniball UK Clinical Study

Let's dive deeper into the results of the  research

What does the latest clinical research about Aniball show to the medical community?

The prospective cohort study *Investigating antenatal pelvic floor training using a vaginal balloon device in Czech women, was conducted by Fousek et al., published in the British Journal of Midwifery, (February 2023, Vol 31, No 2).shows that antenatal pelvic floor training with the Aniball device from 36 weeks of gestation in women delivering at term reduces the incidence of episiotomies  (cases: 34% vs controls: 59%; P=0.007).and the total number of birth injuries  (80 vs. 97%, P = 0,005). 

This study examined birth outcomes in Czech nulliparous women with spontaneous cephalic vaginal birth at term, comparing training with a balloon device antenatally or not training with a device.

Among other things, this study concluded that Aniball is safe and does not increase the risk of levator ani avulsion, because there was no difference in the incidence of pelvic floor injuries (levator ani muscle avulsion) between exercisers and non-exercisers. This is very positive news for Aniball, as it confirms that Aniball use does not compromise the integrity of the pelvic floor and thus does not cause urogynecological problems in the future.

Other incidental findings:

  • Frequency

more frequent exercise does not lead to a further reduction in the number of birth injuries or an improvement in their spectrum

  • Achieved circumference of the balloon

the most common maximum circumference was 25 cm - confirming that it is not desirable to inflate the balloon more => reducing psychological stress and pressure to perform

  • Quality of life after childbirth

exercising women reported no reduction in quality of life. In contrast, comparing the prevalence of urinary, anal incontinence and sexual dysfunction after childbirth between the two groups, more non-exercising women reported stress incontinence (p = 0.066) and impaired quality of sexual life (p = 0.14)

The analysis of the causes of women's withdrawal after childbirth revealed a non-significant reduction in the number of vaginal extraction operations in practicing women (6.8 vs. 17.3%, p = 0.0895)
