Using birthing balls in pregnancy

Hi, I heard using a birthing ball in pregnancy helps strengthen the muscles needed for pushing baby out. Do you know what you need to do with the ball?
Thanks

My DS was back to back so this time my consultant has told me to sit and bounce on ball from 25 weeks to get baby right way round.
