The nursing staff appreciate using and many of our physicians love for us to use the peanut balls!! We do feel like they decrease the length of first and second stage labor in anesthetized patients and are also helpful positioning aids for moms using Natural Childbirth. They are fun, whimsical, yet very useful tools for labor and birth!
