Sleep during pregnancy is really a challenge. No matter what you do, sleeping for hours at a stretch with the bulging belly becomes difficult. However, tucking a pillow between your legs makes it easier to deal with the restlessness in bed. This is why there various kinds of pregnancy pillows in the market to choose from. If you are wondering which pillow to invest in, here are some you can choose from. You can either get them in online sites or maternity stores.
The all purpose pillow: This is long and slender in shape with curves at the right places that gives support to the belly, back and legs. Sleeping in the fetal position with the pillow tucked in between your legs soothes your fatigued body and calms your senses too. Later it can also double up as a nursing pillow.
The body contouring pillow: It looks like a mini bed placed on your bed. You can lie on your back in this pillow without being worried about your baby as it provides support from both sides without creating a strain on the bellly. It gives your back, belly and head the requisite comfort to relax and rejuvenate.
The pregnancy wedge pillow: This is a smart investment because of its size and shape. While others look like giant pillows taking one-third of your bed’s space, the wedge pillow gives you support at the right places without taking too much space. It is ergonomically designed to give belly support and keep the back, hip and legs aligned to help the expectant mum rest and sleep in peace.
The c-shaped pregnancy pillow: Unlike the all purpose pillow this is curved at both the ends. It gives belly support and is designed to soothe sciatica pain, keeps the spine aligned and is a perfect sleep partner for expectant mothers.
