In this guide, I'll walk you through exactly what you need to consider in order to choose the pillow that offers comfort and support so you can sleep well each and every night!
Why Pregnant Women Need a Pregnancy Body Pillow?There’s no getting away from the fact that pregnancy is uncomfortable. In addition to the fact that you have a baby growing right there inside you, and moving about during the last stages of pregnancy, you may also experience heartburn and leg cramps. You will also probably need to get up more than once during the night to empty your bladder.
Once that baby bump has grown beyond a certain size it becomes impractical to lie on your stomach, even if this was previously your favorite sleeping position. Lying on your back has to be discounted as well, because obstetricians say that in this position the weight of the prenatal uterus will slow down the flow rate of blood returning to your heart. This then has a knock-on effect, hindering the flow of blood to the fetus and increase stillbirth risk.
Another way in which that heavy uterus affects maternal health includes the extra pressure on the spine, back muscles and intestines when lying in a prone position. This can cause muscular pain and hemorrhoids, as well as blood pressure problems. But lying on your side can put strain on your hips and back, making relaxation difficult and sleep elusive.
