You can buy them on Amazon or from Premier Birth Tools. Make sure you get the right size for your height. If you are 4’8” – 5’10”, get the 65cm ball. If you are 5’11” or taller, get the 75cm ball. They do take 2 or 3 days to fully inflate.
These are excellent for pregnancy and labor. They’re nice to have around the house too.
