Pregnancy and sleep are often two things that don’t really get along with each other. Especially as you approach the third trimester. According to research, up to 96% of women have problems sleeping when pregnant. One really helpful product to invest in, to keep you as comfortable as possible, is a pregnancy pillow.
We were sent the U Shaped Original Pregnancy Pillow from pregnancypillows.net and, with me being quite far along in pregnancy, we put it to good use straight away! Pregnancy Pillows have over 15 years’ experience in the textiles industry and have thoroughly researched the best fabrics and shapes to use for their pillows.
The first thing I noticed about the U Shaped Original Pregnancy Pillow was how soft it was. I was practically stroking it when I got it out of its packaging. You could feel straight away how supportive it is and it’s easy to see how high the quality of the materials used are. There’s nothing worse than a floppy, unsupportive pillow!
The outer part of the pillow is made from baby soft fabric and the inner fabric is polycotton, which is highly durable and soft. The filling is an anti-allergenic, anti-asthmatic material called Sensifill. Sensifill is also free from any harmful chemicals.
I’ve gotten on really well with the U Shaped Original Pregnancy Pillow, and although it takes up quite a bit of room, it has been a welcome addition to my bed at the end of a hard day. The back and bump pains that I have been getting in the third trimester seemed to have lessened since I started to use the pillow, which is wonderful!
The U Shaped Original Pregnancy Pillow will also see us through to when the new baba arrives, which is a scary, but exciting thought! It can be used as a support when feeding. I remember from last time how much your arms ached from trying to balance a baby and feed them at the same time, so I’m sure the pillow will continue to help us out. it can also be used as a support pillow for toddlers to sit in, much to my daughter’s excitement…

The U shaped Pregnancy pillow is pregnancypillows.net’s bestselling pillow and as well as being hypoallergenic and great for support during pregnancy, it can also help with easing the discomfort of other pains such as SPD, Fibromyalgia and Arthritis, to name a few.
The RRP for the U Shaped Original Pregnancy Pillow is £35, which is a really great price considering its size, the quality, and how much use you will get out of it. You can purchase it directly from their site here.
Did you use a pregnancy pillow when pregnant? I also have the Dream Genii pillow and like to alternate between the two depending on how much support I feel I need.
*We were sent the pillow free of charge in return for an honest review.
