is it safe to practice with a birthing ball from the second trimester onwards? or is there are risk of your cervix opening and inducing premature labour?

I tried one of these things and to be honest I didn't feel secure on it. I know lots of women use them during labor but I'd be scared of falling off.

Your cervix is blocked by a thick mucous plug. Using a birthing ball shouldn't cause premature labor.

does it not encourage widening of the pelvis and opening of the muscles in that area?i would like to try using one asap so i can exercise the appropriate parts before labor but i am unsure wether it is safe
