My DreamGenii Pillow


The best sleep position during pregnancy is "SOS" (sleep on side). Even better is to sleep on your left side. Sleeping on your left side will increase the amount of blood and nutrients that reach the placenta and your baby. Keep your legs and knees bent and a pillow between your legs.

Sleeping on the back causes low blood pressure and decreases circulation to your heart and your baby. This is a result of your abdomen resting on your intestines and major blood vessels (the aorta and vena cava).

So, hubby bought a DreamGenii 2-in-1 Pregnancy Support & Feeding Pillow for me so that I can start sleeping on my side comfortably. :)


Product features:

  • Multi-award winning and patent-protected
  • Supports back, bump and knees without taking up all of the room in the bed
  • Encourages you to sleep on your left side (which is the best position for mum and baby), but can be used just as comfortably on the right hand side
  • Encourages maximum blood flow between mother and baby
  • If used from around 20 weeks, optimal fetal positioning will be encouraged that leads to a shorter and less painful labor with less chance of medical intervention
  • Comes with a removable, washable pillow cover
