The Pregnancy Pillow After Pregnancy

Jul 31, 2008
For women who are going through pregnancy, especially the latter months (3rd trimester), the pregnancy pillow is a gift from up above.

Women love the pregnancy pillow because it supports the already stressed abdomen muscles and the lower back while one is sleeping. The full body ones can support the nech and legs as well.

Now, what happens after the kid is born? Is it just used for nursing after? Do you just put it aside till the next baby comes along? There is no reason why a person who good nights sleep cannot enjoy the benefits and muscle support, the pregnancy pillow brings.

Regardless of what position you prefer sleeping on - whether you are a back, on your stomach, or sideways - the pregnancy pillow can improve the quality of sleep you have for you to feel recharged and fresh always the next morning.

If you are a Back sleeper, you can place it under one side. This will tilt you body a bit and might be weird at first, but this will reduce snoring as it clears the breathing pathways. It also aligns the spine. The lower portion of the pregnancy pillow can be placed under the knees to support the pelvic region as well. Or you can make it like a foot / leg rest.

If you are a stomach sleeper, you probably usually suffer from headaches and start getting symptoms of carpal tunnel. If you place the pregnancy pillow under your torso to tilt your body it will help alleviate those symptoms. As time goes on, you can eventually sleep from your face down position to one of side sleeping without the seriously disrupting their sleeping habits. It is like you progressively train yourself to sleep on your side.

If you are a sideways sleeper, the pregnancy pillow is very comfortable as it supports your legs, hips and upper back. As this is generally the most recommended position, whether or not your pregnant as it aligns the spine in its proper alignment by supporting the shoulders and the hips as it holds the arms and legs in a position in proper alignment to the axis of your body.

To understand what I mean, if you are a side sleeper, try to use multiple pillows to simulate what it would feel like. Place a pillow under your head, another one for your arms to wrap around. You also use this pillow and place it under your chin to support your neck. And finally, place another separate pillow to wrap around with your legs. You can also use a forth one, if you want to. You place it opposite the side you are facing (touching your back) as well to get that
