Pregnancy stability balls are the only piece of exercise equipment that you may want to invest in when you’re expecting a child. Stability balls – which are also known as balance balls or Swiss balls – are the big, colorful balls that you see incorporated into different fitness routines.
Pregnancy stability balls are often used in Pilates, yoga, and other prenatal exercise classes.
Using a pregnancy stability ball can help moms-to-be maintain balance and stability during her workouts. They can also help you with abdominal exercises. (Having strong abdominals are important during labor and delivery, since they help you push out your baby more easily.)
