Pregnancy Pillow

Pregnancy pillows come in many shapes and sizes, from a wedge to a full body pillow. Here is the best maternity pillow I have found to help you sleep better during this special but often uncomfortable time.

Why should you sleep on your side during pregnancy?

After 28 weeks of pregnancy, lying on your back presses on major blood vessels, which can reduce blood flow to your uterus and the oxygen supply to your baby. If you’re napping or preparing to go to sleep at night, sleep on your side.

Research tells us that going to sleep on your side halves the risk of late-term stillbirth compared with sleeping on your back. Currently, stillbirth after 28 weeks of pregnancy affects about one in every 500 babies and is more likely to occur unexpectedly in normally developed babies whose mothers have had uncomplicated pregnancies.

Why buy a pregnancy pillow?

During pregnancy, you can experience various aches and pains from your growing bump, and the surge in hormones. We love the Sleepy Belly pregnancy pillow because it surrounds your tummy and back. One side provides support and relief for your tummy and the other side prevents you from rolling onto your back during the night.

What Shape pregnancy pillow is best?

The Sleepy Belly pillow is uniquely designed to be easily adjusted to give you the optimal support throughout your entire pregnancy. As your belly grows, you can increase the width between the pillows using the velcro attachment.

3-Piece Adjustable Pregnancy Pillow is proven to help expecting mothers get better sleep. You can choose from the long back support for those who don’t tend to wriggle. Or the dual wedge pillow if you like to switch sides. The product comes with all 3 pieces so try both to see what works best for you.
