Best Pregnancy Pillow For Pregnancy (VIDEO)

Best Pregnancy Pillow For Pregnancy (VIDEO) Wellness Blog

W ho could have imagined sleep during pregnancy would become a challenge? Looks like a job for hands down the best pregnancy pillow.

The video demonstrates the struggle beautifully. Who else has collected every pillow in the house attempting to get comfortable enough to sleep? Stop. Take a deep breath. Breathe out slowly repeating after me, “I need the best pregnancy pillow.”

I am sure your doctor has informed you that at some point, sleeping on your back is a HUGE “no, no” during pregnancy. Sleeping on your stomach or your back will cause issues for you and with your baby’s development.

We are talking lack of blood flow and nutrients to your baby, breathing issues for you, digestive problems, low circulation, and dare I mention hemorrhoids?

Are you taking me seriously yet? Good.

Side sleeping is your only healthy option, your left side to be exact. Sleeping on your left side increases the amount of nutrients and blood flowing to the placenta and your growing baby.

If you are not a side sleeper, your only hope to coping for your last 36 weeks of pregnancy (yes, start side sleeping at 14 weeks) is the absolute best pregnancy pillow for your needs. If you are dealing with heartburn you may need to use additional pillows to sleep at an incline.

Otherwise, a pregnancy pillow will ease any hip, leg, and back pains during pregnancy. Back pains alone are experienced by 50 to 70 percent of women who are pregnant.

Let me tell you from experience, a pregnancy pillow hugs you. Let’s be completely honest with each other, every pregnant woman could use several hugs throughout pregnancy. Making another human being is hard work!

Start by listing your pregnancy discomforts so far. These could be common pregnancy issues like hip pains, backaches, or leg cramps. Many pregnancy discomforts are interconnected as your belly grows, your back is strained. As your belly pulls you forward your hips are no longer aligned. When your hips and spine are not aligned you will have issues with circulation to your legs.

So look for the best pregnancy pillow to help ease your pains, align your body, and allow you to get a more restful side sleep.

As Catherine Jones author of “Eating for Pregnancy: The Essential Nutrition Guide and Cookbook for Today’s Mother-to-be” proclaims,

Whether your pregnancy was meticulously planned, medically coaxed, or happened by surprise, one thing is certain – your life will never be the same.

Your life may never be the same but at least you can sleep cozy with the best pregnancy pillow for your comfort needs!

Some expecting mothers need more support, others want minimal, we tried several versions and decided on a top seven overall best pregnancy pillows, in no particular order.

This seems to be the perfect pick because it is firm, soft and flexible. The Snoogle is C-Shaped but can be twisted into an S-Shape to support your head, back or belly, then tucked between your knees and separate ankles. Sounds complicated but it creates space for your knees, ankles, and belly lifting your back into alignment.

Experiment with this pregnancy pillow, it can do way more than just hug your body. I continue to use this total body pillow, in several creative ways beyond maternity.

The Back ‘N Belly pregnancy pillow by Leachco supports your belly and back with its U shape. If you are in need of some hugs buy it. No adjusting or repositioning is necessary if you want to turn over for a bit in the middle of the night. (Or use the restroom…again?) For the unfortunate ones suffering from acid reflux or rhinitis during your pregnancy, here is a pillow to help.

This contoured body pillow is BPA free, latex free, phthalate-free and lead-free. Unsure why any pillow would have any lead but rest peacefully knowing Leachco cares enough to free you from these toxins. Most pregnant women suffer hip pain during pregnancy so Leachco created a design to neutralize joint positioning by aligning your hips. It may not be for everyone but it is definitely cozy.

A therapeutic total body pregnancy pillow for maternity and postpartum pains. An interior cushion helps to keep this pillow firm yet cushy enough for reliable joint support and alignment. If you are suffering from shoulder, neck and lower back pains this is the pillow to try!

It comes with a 100% cotton cover while most other pregnancy pillows require you to buy them separately. If you are looking for something soft but not too soft and firm enough to take the strain off your neck and back this is a great contender.

What is there not to like about this self-adjusting body pillow for pregnancy by Leachco? The center is soft and stretchy to grow with your baby bump. Mother’s expecting multiples recommend the Leachco Grow because the center is more giving towards the growth of their bellies compared to the other pregnancy pillows on the market.

The ends are contoured to hug your curves and body yet can be removed to suit your comfort needs. Getting comfortable is such a struggle for some moms-to-be and that is why this versatile pregnancy pillow made our best pregnancy pillow list.

5. Moonlight Slumber Comfort-U Total Body Support Pillow

Stop. Doesn’t this girl look the most comfortable of all these ladies sleeping on pregnancy pillow stock images? Maybe because she isn’t really pregnant? None the less, expecting mothers are saying this total body pillow is a hidden gem of pregnancy pillows. If you need a cocoon-like feel to get a good nights rest, this U-shaped body pillow is what you are missing.

The Moonlight Slumber is ready to snuggle yet be forewarned it could get kind hot, so get a fan going before you lay down. Do not be surprised if you find your significant other snuggling this body pillow as well. People with severe back issues and surgeries cannot stop raving about this Comfort-U Total Body Pillow. Give it a try!

6. Preggle Chic Jersey XL Extra Long Comfort Air-Flow Body Pillow

The Preggle is the most unique pregnancy pillow on the market for it’s J-shape. Pregnant mothers swear this to be the absolute best pregnancy pillow because you can use your own pillow for neck support. As you may have noticed the other pregnancy pillows are shaped so that you used it as your head pillow as well. The issue with these designs is that sometimes the neck support is off.

If you love everything about your pregnancy pillow but have neck pain complaints, consider switching to the Preggle Chic. Do you suffer heartburn during pregnancy and use a mountain of pillows to sleep at an incline in order to help it? This pregnancy pillow will fit into your heartburn elimination routine without any issues. The Preggle is currently the only J-shaped pregnancy pillow on the market, which helps it stand alone as possibly the best pregnancy pillow.

I cannot possibly make a best pregnancy pillow list without involving a pregnancy wedge. Getting proper belly support will reduce edema during pregnancy or swelling. The hiccapop pregnancy wedge offers the support you need using memory foam and is two-sided. In a good way two-sided. If you need something firmer for earlier in your pregnancy or if you require softer support as your bump grows, this wedge is it.

Some women already own an extra pillow for between the knees or get too hot with a large pregnancy pillow surrounding them as they sleep. In that case, this portable wedge has a washable plush cover, uses air-flow technology to keep your belly ventilated from getting too hot while sleeping.

It is no secret that we are all made uniquely different and are experiencing different pregnancy concerns, pains or struggles. If we get anything right, our health, wellness (mind, body, soul), and sleep are the top 3 concerns for every pregnancy. The best pregnancy pillow for you will be easier to deal with than piles of all the pillows in the house. Try a few or keep researching till you find the one to help you get a more restful sleep. We broke down all the top pregnancy pillows on the market in our link below.
