I was going to use the Smart Balls while pregnant, but now I am not sure.


Hi, I have just brought a single ball and was wondering if I can use it during my pregnancy?
I'm 23 weeks but reading the 'how to' leaflet, it says not to use during pregnancy.

We do not recommend SmartBalls for use during pregnancy, While they are not likely to cause any harm, many manufacturers are extra cautious about pregnancy. You can start using them 6 weeks after having baby provided your midwife gives you the all clear. We do recommend using them before and after each pregnancy so if you decide to have more children get in shape beforehand.

The Natratoner is one of the few pelvic floor toners that is recommended for use during pregnancy and can be used in conjunction with the Smart Balls before and after pregnancy.
