Which Shaped Pillow is Best During Pregnancy?

It’s important to get quality sleep during pregnancy, whether it’s several hours at night or a 20-minute catnap (or two) during the day. As a pregnant woman, you need a lot of energy. After all, that beautiful bump is growing a baby inside you. Finding the perfect sleeping position when you need it most can be difficult, especially during the second and third trimesters.

One part of your life that is affected by a pregnancy, and not usually for the better, is your sleep quality. Since growing a baby is hard work, this seems particularly unfair. Pregnancy pillows help with this problem and support your growing body in multiple ways. Pregnancy pillows are likely to help you whether you’re looking for general comfort or specific support for a particular area of your body.

Pregnancy Pillows: What Are They?

If you want to sleep better during pregnancy, you need a pillow that fulfils its primary function: supporting your body. It is suggested that you sleep on your side during your second and third trimesters, especially with your knees bent. By strategically placing your pregnancy pillow between your knees, underneath your abdomen, or behind your back, pregnancy pillows support this position. Since they are moldable, you can support your growing and changing body with most of the best-rated pregnancy pillows.

The Importance of a Pregnancy Body Pillow

During pregnancy, you can only sleep on your side, but with a growing bump, your hips and back will be under more pressure — which is why a pregnancy body pillow is essential. Different pillows provide support for different body parts; some for your back, others for your knees, others for your belly, and some for all the above. A pillow can help you sleep comfortably at night and prevent morning pains and aches.

Shapes of Pregnancy Pillows

Each pillow for pregnant women has its benefits, and they come in various shapes.

Butterfly Wing Design Pillows

The Butterfly Wing design provides outstanding support for side sleeping during pregnancy, ensuring optimal blood flow as recommended by doctors.

Contoured and Crescent Shaped Pillows

This contoured design allows you to rest and sleep comfortably with tremendous shoulder, neck, and head support. It also allows you to recover from pain and strain in the lower pelvic area so you wake up refreshed and ready to face the day ahead. As a result, you will get better sleep, which is particularly important during pregnancy and postpartum.

C Shaped Pillows

With this side sleeping body pillow, you can sleep comfortably and support your head, neck, and shoulders. It curves down behind your back for back support, then curls in between the legs and knees for pelvic and hip support, reducing back pain, and then tucks under the belly for support of the baby bump. As a result, you get better sleep during pregnancy and postnatal.

J Shaped Pillows

This body pillow is extremely comfortable and supportive as you and your baby sleep on your side. With a “J” shaped design, you get great baby bump support while resting/sleeping while also recovering from pain and strain in the lower pelvic area, so you wake up refreshed and ready to tackle the day. As a result, you’ll get better sleep, essential during pregnancy and after delivery.

U Shaped Pillows

The U-shaped body pillow provides you and your baby with extreme comfort and support. As a result of the “U” shaped design, you get full baby bump support while you sleep and rest, as well as relief from lower pelvic pain and strain. Your pregnancy and postnatal period will be more enjoyable if you get better sleep.
