The birthing ball is great for labor I hear, but even before than, jump on it when you are having braxton hicks. That way you are allowing gravity to use those contractions more effectively in turn helping you dialate. And, yeah, just rolling your pelvis around on it. Good for getting baby in the right position too.

Even just sitting on it is a good idea because it puts you in a squatting position where gravity can really work to your advantage.

I sat on it when ever I was folding laundry or watching tv. I felt more comfortable sitting it. It relieved pressure off of my pelvic area. Then in labor I sat on it as much as I could. I rocked because of the pain.
