What to consider when buying a pregnancy pillow

Size and Shape

Pregnancy pillows come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Some take up more space than others. Here are the most popular types of pregnancy or maternity pillows:–

  • U-shaped pregnancy pillow is ideal for women who sleep on their back as you can wrap the pillow around your body and comfortably move around.
  • Body pillow which is long like a sausage and great if you sleep on your side as you can hug it and support the full length of your body.
  • Wedge pillow which is smaller and you can use as a support between your legs, under your bump if you lay on your side or as a breastfeeding pillow.
  • Pregnancy pillow with hole which is ideal if you are someone who sleeps on your front as the hole will accommodate your bump.

What Support Does It Give?

You may want support for your back, knees, bump or other. A good pregnancy pillow should be firm enough to support you.

Before you buy, check what you can use the pillow for. A lot of pregnancy pillows can also be used as nursing/ breastfeeding pillows once your baby is born.

What Material Is It Made Of?

You also want something which feels soft and cosy to touch and is made of non-allergenic material. Look for hypoallergenic pillows which can be machine washed (or the covers can be).
