Comfort and support during pregnancy and breastfeeding
Pregnancy pillows provide comfort and support against the increasing demands of pregnancy on a woman’s body. Also known as ‘body pillows’, ‘maternity pillows’, ‘nursing pillows’, and ‘breastfeeding pillows’, pregnancy pillows have long ‘arms’ that can be used to support, prop and cushion various parts of the body simultaneously.
While side sleeping is the recommended and safest sleeping position for pregnant women, the added weight of the growing foetus can make this uncomfortable. Not only do pregnancy pillows make side sleeping comfortable, they encourage it! The size and flexibility of pregnancy pillows means that you can adjust them in many different ways to get the support you need to the areas that you need it most.
Pregnancy and maternity pillows (also known as body pillows) can be used to relieve lower back pain, support the abdomen, maintain spinal alignment, elevate the torso and reduce heartburn and reflux, reduce tossing and turning, encourage side sleeping, reduce snoring, improve breathing patterns and help open airways; cradle, cushion and comfort; prop, snuggle and support.
There are many different options when it comes to pregnancy pillows depending upon what type of support you are looking for. Full body pillows have longer armsand provide the ultimate flexibility as they can be used to support the abdomen, lower back and hips as well as the upper body.However, full body pillows can take up a lot of space in the bed so some people may prefer a standard body pillow.If the full body ‘Cuddle Up’ or ‘Lucky 7’ pregnancy pillows are too big for your bed, try the ‘Side Snuggler’, ‘Lucky One’ or ‘Banana’ pillows instead.
100% Australian made, designed by health professionals
All our body pillows are 100% Australian made and are designed in consultation with Australian health professionals to support correct spinal alignment and provide therapeutic benefits across a range of health conditions. Whether you suffer from neck pain, shoulder pain or back pain, overheating or night sweats, migraines, sleep apnea or snoring, we have a pillow that can help.
Our pillow range can accommodate all types of sleepers. If you are a side sleeper (the recommended sleeping position) or prefer to sleep on your back, we have a contoured pillow, body pillow, or speciality pillow to meet your unique needs. Tummy sleeping is not recommended due to the stress it places on your neck and spine. We suggest trying one of our contoured pillows designed to encourage side sleeping to see if you can make the switch, however if this is not an option, our range of low profile and adjustable pillows can help to minimise the issues associated with tummy sleeping.
