Pregnancy Boppy Pillow - Cuddle Comfort Pillows
Sleep comfortably with the spine and stomach support offered by the Pregnancy Boppy Pillow. By the end of the day, many pregnant women are ready to crawl into bed. Swollen feet, aching abdominal muscles, sore hips and back strain make walking around uncomfortable.
Without proper support of the back and abdomen, sleeping is often just as uncomfortable. The baby feels mom settle down and starts moving around. Pressure on the hips makes you toss and turn trying to get comfortable. Gravity pulls your stomach into the mattress leading to lower back pain. By supporting your stomach with a pregnancy pillow, you alleviate pressure on your spine and get a restful night's sleep.
Pregnancy and Sciatica
Some women experience sciatica. Located in the lumbar region, the sciatic nerves travel down the spine into the legs. Pressure of the uterus against the sciatic nerve often sends bolts of pain through the pelvis and buttocks. Women who experience sciatica find sleep difficult. A pregnancy pillow helps keep the spine straight and prevents pressure on the sciatic nerve.
Because the ends of the Pregnancy Boppy Pillow are long enough to tuck between your thighs, you help align the bones in your pelvis so that they are parallel to the spine. This eases the risk of sciatic and also prevents pressure points between the knees and ankles.
Features of a Pregnancy Boppy Pillow
The C-shaped pregnancy Boppy pillow is about 20 inches by 7 inches by 16 inches. It's large and takes up a bit of space, but most couples sleeping in a queen bed find the pillow doesn't crowd out the non-pregnant partner.
The fiberfill supports your expanding belly. Plus, the pillow curves around offering neck and spine support. Because the pillow surrounds your body, it helps keep you from flipping to your back in the middle of the night.
A Boppy pregnancy pillow is not washable, but it does come in a machine washable cotton cover. If the pillow itself needs cleaning, you can spot clean the bed pillow's area. Make sure you allow it to completely dry before putting the cover back on.Copyright 2004-2013 S&T US LLC
