Exercise balls can be used any time during pregnancy and it's my understanding that they can help move first stages of labour along but only once it's started already. X

They won't bring labour on, they may help to keep things going but only because being mobile/upright in any way during labour will help. You can use it beforehand whenever you like, it's good for pelvic floor exercises.
