I started the exercise at 21 cm and I reached 29.8 cm 2 days before giving birth. Thanks to Aniball I was less afraid of childbirth and I believe that also thanks to it the birth became an experience for me. It was absolutely easy, basically I knew roughly what to expect. The labor lasted about 3 hours, without epidural anesthesia, without episiotomy and without any injury. In the hospital I was an exemplar – I had fast delivery and without injury as a primipara and almost the only one able to sit, walk and function normally after childbirth. The midwife also highly praised the balloon. Thank you very much for this great invention that makes sense and has certainly helped many women. Let me add that a friend of mine also exercised; she gave birth on Monday and also had no injuries :) If I plan another baby, I will use the balloon again :)
I decided to try the balloon after reading several reviews. The first insertion was awkward, inflating even more, but I wasn’t panicking, logically, it's just not a pleasure :-) I exercised for about 14 days, then the head already descended, the cervix shortened and the inserted balloon began to bother me... They were only two weeks left till the date of a labor and I had 25 cm safely practiced. I spent 20 hours in the delivery room on the day of the labor. The second stage of labor, however, from all this lasted “only” two hours, and when the moment for pushing came, I was - although a primipara - an absolute professional. I knew the technique of expelling the balloon and the pressure caused by the descending head was also well known to me. The labor was finished after a quarter of an hour, our magical Vašík was born with an incredible weight and measurement of 4010 g and 54 cm! When the doctor checked my condition, the perineum was WITHOUT a episiotomy! For all expectant mothers – don’t hesitate to try Aniball, it certainly works, at least for encouraging the mindset of a woman in labor, which I rank in first place. I would like to add a little wisdom from my husband for the end, when he wept with happiness – he was looking at the little one and said: YOU CAN’T BUY HAPPINESS, BUT YOU CAN GIVE BIRTH TO IT :-)
“When I had the balloon in my hands I was a little doubtful about the results and the possible assistance in childbirth preparation. But I saw a certain logic in it – what is practiced works. I practiced faithfully every day about 3.5 weeks before the birth, and reached 9.5 cm. In the hospital I went quietly. I knew that if a balloon with the diameter of a newborn’s head “passed” through me, my daughter would come out without problems. The actual delivery was quite fast, uncomplicated, without medication, and especially without any consequences! No cutting or small tears. A natural childbirth. Twenty minutes after the birth, I got up and went for my daughter. I can say that I’m ‘the same’ as before. Thanks to my preparation with Aniball I knew what to do, how to push. The midwife praised me how well I managed it. When I told her about the balloon she didn’t know at all what I meant unfortunately. That may soon change, and I dare say that antenatal exercises with this balloon should be almost mandatory. :)”
I used Aniball before my second birth (I didn’t know about it for the first) and until that moment I had never understood the muscles used to help the baby out. I highly recommend it…”
My experience with Aniball is unambiguously positive. After negative experiences with the birth of my first daughter (3200/51cm) I wanted to try everything to make my childbirth easier. And we succeeded. I regularly practiced with the Aniball 4 weeks before term and it paid off. I gave birth to a son measuring 3800/54cm, without incisions, the help of a doctor, or stitching. The doctor, who watched it all from a distance, didn’t believe it. It was really a miracle and I will remember this childbirth for the rest of my life
“I can only recommend Aniball, a great preparation for childbirth. My daughter was 4.2 kg, head circumference measuring 37 cm. It was without an episiotomy. The recovery period after birth went smoothly, exactly one week later I was riding a horse. I dare say that as a primipara with such a large baby I would not have made it without an injury without exercising with Aniball.”
“I tried Aniball for my second birth. My first son was delivered through Caesarean section, so that the second birth I went in basically as a primipara. I practiced for about 4 weeks. From the beginning I found it totally unrealistic to inflate the balloon to the size of a baby’s head, but through everyday practice the volume increased. Indeed, it was fun. I went to the hospital to drain the water, knowing that the baby would pass through the birth canal because I has rehearsed and knew which muscles to use. I don’t know how the childbirth looked to outside observers, but in my head I recall that I just pushed a few times and that was it. I have nice memories of it. Thanks for the balloon. Despite the quantity of terrifying childbirth and episiotomy scenarios on the internet, it got me into an absolute calm state of mind and I looked forward to the birth process.”
