Sleepless nights will be a distant memory once you’ve read this


You should know by now that you need to take care of yourself now more than ever. Sleep is a substantial part of that and we know the more your baby grows, the less comfortable you become at bedtime. That’s why we’ve got some great pregnancy pillows perfect for aiding you in a comfy, restful night’s sleep.

Everyone’s raving about the DreamGenii maternity support pillow (£37.95, Amazon). This little gem supports your bump, back and knees and won’t take up lots of space on the bed. It’s designed to encourage you to sleep on your left side, the recovery position, to help your baby get into the best position for birth. It also offers back support to stop you from rolling onto your back. The bonus? It’s eligible for free next-day delivery with Amazon Prime.


For lumbar support, try this Bolster Pillow by The Good Sleep Expert by Sammy Margo (£32, BHS). As well as bedtime help, this can also be used to sit with and can even be folded to rest your legs.


The Original U-Shaped pregnancy pillow (£27.50, Pregnancy Pillows) is good for the relief of back and muscle pains and comes with a free, super-soft pillowcase in your choice of colour. It adapts to the contours of your body, promoting sleeping on your side, which helps maintain healthy blood flow for you and your little one.


For a more affordable option, check out Dunelm’s offering (£13.99) for added elevation.


Or John Lewis’ Duck Feather bolster cushion pad (£8). It moulds to your shape for added comfort and is machine washable.
