Body or maternity pillows are specifically designed to help a pregnant woman sleep more comfortably. According to the nonprofit American Pregnancy Association[1] , it is best for a pregnant women to sleep on her side to increase the amount of blood and nutrients that reach the placenta. WebMD[2] says having a pillow under the abdomen or between the knees may also help. Maternity pillows come in many shapes: straight, full-length pillows and those shaped like a "c" or a "j." Some are wedge or doughnut-shaped, while others consist of two pillows joined by fabric and Velcro, which can be adjusted so the pillows support the abdomen and back simultaneously.

Typical costs:

  • Smaller-sized pillows, such as the Boppy Pregnancy Wedge cost as little as $15.
  • Larger pillows, like the Snoogle[3] and the Snoozer[4] typically cost $40 to $60.
  • Hypoallergenic or natural goose-down pillows are more expensive, usually between $60 and $160.

Brand: MumoocieType: Body Pillow
I purchased this same pillow for my daughter who would crawl in bed with my husband and I every night because she was afraid of the dark. She just turned 8 so it was getting crowded in my bed.I have been using this Mumoocie now for several months and love it. It took her a couple of weeks to adjust but now she sleeps in her own bed.This has been a lifesaver.I would highly recommend.
