I was a bit skeptical but after reading so many positive reviews, thought it would be worth a try as perineal massage was very alien to me and difficult to reach around the bump to do correctly!
Genuinely think I would have torn if it wasn’t for this product. I had a water birth, used the tens machine before getting into the water and gas and air for pushing stage - I had no tears at all!!! Highly recommend, worth every penny to have a positive birth experience and a quicker recovery post-birth.
I was skeptical about the Aniball and although I haven’t given birth yet, I feel much more confident about going into labour that I did before I started training. On the first try I could hardly get the balloon inside, even entirely deflated! After a month of training I’ve managed to inflate it nearly to 25cm and pull it out. Let’s hope I don’t end up tearing or needing an episiotomy but either way I’d recommend the Aniball. Worth the investment and can be used as pelvic floor training for life :)
I have absolutely no doubt that Aniball made my birth easier. It helped me practice the pushing stage of delivery and helped me feel relaxed and confident about my birth. I delivered a 9lb 5oz baby without any need for stitches. I can't believe it!
Had to have ventouse delivery in the end and the midwives and doctors commented on how well I was looking down there afterwards. I needed 4 stitches and no episiotomy which they said was extremely good and put it down to the Aniball! Very glad I purchased and used it. Thanks!
I used Aniball every other day from 36 weeks, gradually increasing the size as I went. I gave birth at 41 + 5 days to my first baby - I was able to calmly breathe baby out using the techniques I had gained over the previous weeks using Aniball. The result was no tears, no stitches, only what they described as a small graze that required no treatment. I couldn’t recommend the product more! Definitely worth the investment.
