You can start exercising after the 36th week of your pregnancy. Exercise for 10 to 15 minutes daily. You can also practice more often, the only limitation being pain or sensitivity.
The goal of the exercise is to achieve a 30 cm circumference of the balloon in about 3-4 weeks of regular exercise, which corresponds to a newborn’s average cranial circumference at birth.
No, in fact, the opposite is true. Unfortunately, this common misconception often dissuades women from this exercise. Exercising with Aniball does not only prevent microtraumas during labor, but also prevents the cutting of the muscles, which happens during an episiotomy.
This question requires a longer explanation. The pelvic floor muscles are composed of many microscopic fibers. During muscle contractions, these fibers are contracting due to the action of two substances – actin and myosin. The contractions only occur when the muscles are carefully trained and remain intact. However, during childbirth, when the pelvic floor muscles stretch by approximately 300% in a 20 to 30 minute span, there is the occurrence of microscopic injuries, which can lead to scarification in a short time.This makes it impossible for the muscle fibers to subsequently contract. The maximum expansion of the pelvic floor muscles occurs at the moment of the baby’s head passing – the muscles are triple-stretched from about 3 to 10 cm. It is therefore clear that untrained muscle tissue may tear. Training with Aniball allows the muscles to contract, avoiding tears and scarification, thus allowing the cervix to return to its natural shape after childbirth.
No, It cannot. Aniball has been thoroughly tested under relevant European directives on medical devices. However, remember to only use water-based lubricants and check your balloon before every use. Do not apply oil-based lubricants since they could damage balloon’s surface.
No, it cannot. Gynecologists agree that exercising with Aniball cannot cause a premature birth nor contractions.
No, it cannot. Exercising with the balloon during a healthy pregnancy does not cause the fluid to leak. The amniotic sac is protected by a suppository that protects the membranes and does not collapse until just before delivery. The outflow of amniotic fluid can occur at any time and the reasons may vary. It is most often caused by infections or it occurs during a full moon or a change in pressure.
Yes, definitely. Even two weeks can make a big difference, especially if you practice twice each day (morning and evening).
Yes. Using Aniball after childbirth regenerates the muscles of the pelvic area and thus reduces leakage that occurs after birth.
During the exercise, there may be a slight leakage of urine due to the pressure of the balloon on a full bladder. This is a minimal amount and should not cause concern or dissuade you from exercising with Aniball. After the completion of the exercise, no more urine should leak.
Do not use Aniball during a high-risk pregnancy, when there is a risk of preterm delivery, during any genitalia bleeding, when a Caesarean section is planned, when there is a current outbreak of warts or other infectious pathology in the genitals or in the genitalia opening, when there is a case of genital herpes, genitalia injury, precancerous condition and other pathologies of the cervix. If any problem occurs during exercise, please consult with your midwife or doctor.
Taking special care after consulting with your doctor is necessary in the case of varicose veins in the genitalia, in the case of a low-placed placenta (inquire with your gynecologist), in the case of the reduced sensitivity of genitalia (neurological diseases, use of painkillers), after treatment of briefly persistent genitalia fragility, after genitalia surgery (scars may not allow sufficient flexibility of the genitalia) and in the case of lichen sclerosus of external genitalia (chronic skin disease). If any problems occur while exercising, consult with your midwife or doctor.
Regarding varicose veins on the genitals it is particularly important not to cut anything at birth. If you don’t have a contraindication for natural delivery (nothing prevents natural birth and the head can be born even through genitals with varicose veins), then you can exercise with the balloon. Of course, it is always necessary to carefully assess your particular situation and consult with a medical professional. We strongly recommend a cautious approach, enough lubricant, and to slowly and gradually squeeze out the balloon.
Prepare for a natural childbirth and look forward to this life-affirming experience without fear.
