Besides the benefit of getting baby in the right position, does bouncing on a ball help stretch the perineal area?

What are the other benefits?

I have no idea but have a gym ball too! It does make me sit properly and as I've overdone it today and hurt my back I am going to have a nice bath and spend the rest of the night sitting on the ball!

If you do the right exercises it strengthens your pelvic floor muscles not sure about perineal area though
