I tried sitting on one in both my labours but found them really uncomfortable. With DD the loo was most comfortable - birth chair would have been good too I think with the hole so there was no pressure against my bottom. With DS I spent most of the time on all fours on the bed leaning over a beanbag. Nothing else was comfy.

i think it's prob best to have a big one and slightly deflate it so it's really stable and wide to sit on

Chew the mintie - yep spot on! Jujus Birth Skills! I really *got* what she talked about while I was pregnant but when it came down to it the skills that actually worked for me were drumming my feet and scratching while rhythmically moaning.
Also I much preferred being on all fours leaning over fit ball rocking than sitting on it. Any pressure on my bottom and vagina made things feel worse.

I used one in the shower with DS2 and 'on land' with DS3 at my home birth. i used the ball in different ways between the two births and it's one of my fav labor tools. big thumbs up from me

Boobycino - I bounced my kmart ball to death while pregnant with DD, it's still going strong best $12 I ever spent!

Yup, I sat on one during labour with DD, leaned forward and rested on a stool. For the most part labour was really not that bad at all - I managed to watch a movie. I also used it after to sit on and bounce with the baby to help settle.
