Top 2022 Pregnancy Pillows

Yes, it’s true!. As your pregnancy grows, the baby’s weight begins to put pressure on your back, hips, and other body parts. A pregnancy pillow is a perfect way to relieve this pressure and support the affected areas.
Pregnancy pillows are designed to combat this problem by supporting your tummy and back and also aligning your pelvic muscles, hips, and spine to prevent pain.

How To Use A Pregnancy Pillow For Back Pain

While all pregnancy pillows can aid you in a decent sleep, certain pillows are designed to help with specific sleeping positions. 

The rule of thumb is:
If you sleep on your stomach, try using a full-length pillow. Do you sleep on your back? You might want to use a U-shaped pillow. Sleeping on your side is best with the C-shaped pillow.
However, you know your body and what you think is comfortable, so choose whichever pillow is right for you. 

As your belly continues growing, you might find it hard to sleep well. If you are in the third trimester (or late second) and having trouble sleeping, read on to learn how you can solve that

How Can I Sleep Comfortably After C-Section?

U-Shaped Pregnancy Pillow

These u-shaped pregnancy pillows are amazing for providing head-to-toe support for your changing body. If you’re used to sleeping on your back, this pillow can help make the transition to becoming a side sleeper much easier. To use your u-shaped pregnancy pillow, flip it around so the crescent side is by your head and the open part is near your feet. Then simply rest your head on the curve, and feel free to slip its “arms” between your thighs or knees for extra support.

C-Shaped Pregnancy Pillow

C-shaped pregnancy pillows are great for those of you who need a little extra support for your head, neck, hips, back and stomach. They can help take the pressure off your pelvic region, too, leading to less water retention in your body overall. With its open-sided shape, you can easily move and shift this pillow around to put it into any position you want. The best way to use it, though, is to let the curved part nestle against your back and allow the opening to settle near your belly.

Full-Length Pregnancy Pillow

In a lot of ways, a full-length pregnancy pillow is largely indistinguishable from the normal pillows that already adorn your bed. But while they closely resemble a regular pillow, they also tend to be quite a bit longer in length so they can run along your entire body. If you’re a cuddler, then these pillows will be perfect for you. Simply prop it up against your body, wrap your arms around it, throw a leg or two over it, then snuggle the ever-living heck out of it.
