    I used one in labour and found it really helpful. I don't know whether it would be covered on phi though. I just hired mine from the hospital physio department.
    Sorry that's probably not much help.

    For those playing at home I got it I've got pelvic pain in pregnancy too so my physio wrote note to phi with this reason as to why I need it. Out of pocket was less than $35 a lot cheaper than hiring one

    I hired one for use in labour and it was $70. I don't have PHI so not sure if it's covered. It was amazing pain relief or an amazing distraction, not sure which. Either way it was awesome. Worth every cent and much more.

    I bought one from Aldi for $50 and used it in my second labour and heaps since them for back pain. It was amazing on both counts and I plan to use it for the third also....just wish I'd known about it for the first!
