Feeling comfortable during pregnancy is essential for you and your baby. As your baby bump grows, rest may lower stress levels.
A pregnancy body pillow will contribute to giving you the support your body needs from the first trimester and beyond. Our pillow is optimal for sleeping, sitting, and lying down, and our body pillow covers are made with high quality, long-lasting materials. When investing in a pregnancy body pillow, it’s important to consider everything from quality to support to versatility.
A pregnancy body pillow should provide support for your belly, lower back, pelvis, knees, and ankles so that you have 5-point support. As the stomach grows, the centre of gravity will change. It strains the joints and spine and can create pain. A pregnancy pillow that provides support for the abdomen, lower back, pelvis, knees and ankles may help reduce discomfort.
You don’t want a pregnancy pillow that’s too bulky bbhugme’s pregnancy body pillow moulds perfectly to your body. The shape gives sturdy yet ﬂexible support for every body type.
When shopping for a pregnancy body pillow, consider a brand’s knowledge and expertise about the pregnant body. bbhugme was created by three female Norwegian chiropractors specializing in prenatal and postnatal care. In their practice, they met with many sleep-deprived women suffering from pelvic and back pain before, during, and after pregnancy. Realizing that support and care for pregnant bodies were needed more than ever, the three set out to design the best pregnancy body pillow on the market today.
A pregnancy body pillow should adapt to your changing body and provide support while sleeping —and even when you’re sitting and reclining during pregnancy or postpartum. bbhugme’s pregnancy pillow is designed so you can have a short rest on your stomach. By tying the ends together, you can form a doughnut shape and create a place for your growing baby bump that allows you to rest on your stomach without adding any pressure.
Replaceable Covers Made with High-Quality Materials
Look for a pregnancy body pillow with extra covers. You’ll want a replaceable cover on-hand when you toss the other in the wash. A cover should be soft and smooth, and bbhugme’s body pillow extra covers come in an assortment of colours. The covers are machine washable naturally, and the fabric is elastic yet strong enough to avoid being torn when used.
Our body pillow covers and inner pillow are OEKO-TEX® standard 100 class 1 certified, one of the world’s best-known labels for textiles tested for harmful substances. OEKO-TEX® is a global, independent testing and certification system for textile products.
Your wellbeing is paramount, and sleep is a key ingredient in a pregnancy. A pregnancy body pillow should be comfortable and designed to last. Our pillow’s material is odour-free with natural antibacterial and anti-fungal properties, with a soft and breathable outer cover made with 95% cotton and 5% spandex. Best of all, bbhugme’s pregnancy body pillow and other products are designed for maximum comfort and support by experienced health professionals.
