A bad night sleep is never a good experience. For expectant mothers it can be even more unpleasant. A mum’s body goes through a series of change and a poor sleep has potential to create back pain, muscle aches, heartburn, and insomnia. This is why it’s important for a soon-to-be-mum to feel supported. However, sometime your partner does understand the level of support you need. Fortunately we have an answer to help solve this problem – try one of our body pillows; they’ll support you, comfort you, always be there and never talk back.
A body pillow is an oversized pillow used to provide comfort and support for a more restful night’s sleep. These pillows contour themselves to your body. This provides total support to your back, joints and abdomen. This is done by eliminating pain at pressure points on all major joints of the body. Which is why a body pillow is ideal for a mother-to-be as it relieves this pressure and assists in a peaceful night’s sleep.
Our chiropractors recommend these pillows as 8-9 hours of sleep a night is needed on average for proper bodily functions. This is even more the case when you’re growing a small human inside of you. We also are aware that side sleeping is important for expecting mums but isn’t always comfortable.
Why is are body pillows good for side-sleeping?
Side-sleeping is important as it assists in you in relieving pressure and helping increasing blood and nutrient flow to the placenta. It also relieves pressure on the uterus, liver and other major organs within the abdomen. This is why a body pillow is a perfect solution, it makes side sleeping a more comfortable position. Comforting, supporting and cradling your body during the night to help you get the best sleep possible.
