Using body pillows for pregnancy 

As your body changes during pregnancy, additional pressure can be placed on the back, hips and legs causing undue aches and pains. The use of a body pillow in conjunction with our specialty range of pregnancy pillows helps to alleviate these unwanted tensions by providing additional support and comfort during sleep for a better night’s rest. Careful positioning of a soft body pillow during sleep helps to take the additional weight off your back and hips which can cause muscle tension in the daytime, while removing pressure caused by pregnant bellies to keep you comfortable – especially during the final trimester.

Are body pillows good for you?

Body pillows offer support for your neck and back in addition to the general support you get from your mattress. Using a body pillow is a great support to reduce the chances of sleep strain by keeping your muscles in proper alignment. Body pillows are especially recommended for people who suffer from back problems as hugging the pillow during the night will reduce your desire to twist while you sleep.

Is it bad to have a body pillow?

No, it is not bad to have a body pillow. There is no scientific evidence to suggest that the use of body pillows is detrimental to sleep patterns or muscular tension in any way. Body pillows have been used to assist with many problems that cause irritation during sleep or interrupted sleep, to encourage a better night’s rest.

What’s the purpose of a body pillow?

Our range of body pillows are used by different people for different reasons, some use them to relieve back and neck pain by keeping the spine in alignment while they sleep, while others use the hugging of body pillows to prevent them from turning onto their back, thus helping train themselves to sleep on their side.

Do body pillows help with anxiety?

In addition to helping relieve physical tensions while you sleep, hugging a body pillow can also have a calming effect on your mental state. Hugging a body pillow encourages the release of oxytocin in your brain, which helps to radiate a feeling of calm and ease throughout your body which has been known to relax you as you fall asleep and can even lower your blood pressure. Mental health professionals suggest that hugging a body pillow while you sleep increases your comfort levels, which can help in relieving anxiety as well as making you feel safe and comforted as you rest.

How do you hug a body pillow?

Hugging a body pillow helps to maintain neutral alignment for your spine which is best achieved if you are laying on your side. The pillow should be placed lengthways along your body and used in between your knees to achieve the most comfortable position. Try to avoid throwing your entire leg over the pillow as this can sometimes cause back pain. Once you have achieved the most comfortable leg position, your free arm can be placed over or around the pillow in a hug formation to relieve pressure from your shoulders as you sleep.
