Pregnancy is a time of profound changes—body transformations, emotional highs and lows, and, unfortunately, some uncomfortable nights. Good sleep becomes elusive, especially if you’re not accustomed to sleeping on your side. Luckily, a well-designed pregnancy pillow can be your sleep savior.
The Importance of Side Sleeping During Pregnancy
Various studies recommend that sleeping on the left side is the most beneficial position for pregnant women. This sleeping posture is linked to lower risks of late-term stillbirths as compared to lying on the back or right side. Back sleeping can also compromise the blood supply to the uterus, affecting your baby's health.
Even if you're not pregnant, side sleeping comes with its health benefits, including easier breathing and a potential remedy for sleep apnea. Additionally, it's better for your digestive health and can alleviate issues like heartburn and acid reflux.
However, side sleeping can be a double-edged sword. It may increase pain in the shoulders, neck, and hips, which can be intensified by the weight gain during pregnancy.
How Mari Kali’s Pregnancy Pillows Aid in Side Sleeping
Our newly launched pregnancy pillows at Mari Kali are engineered to provide the support you need for comfortable side sleeping. These pillows are a one-piece design that snugly fits your back, neck, belly, knees, and hips, reducing the pain caused by poor sleep posture.
Unlike stacking multiple regular pillows, our pregnancy pillows are designed to stay in place throughout the night, thanks to their unique shape that contours to your body, including your growing belly.
Types of Pregnancy Pillows at Mari Kali
Wedge Pillows: These are compact and can be positioned to provide targeted support.
Total Body Pillows: These are U- or C-shaped pillows that envelop your body, providing comprehensive support.
Full-Length Body Pillows: These are flexible options that can be manipulated for customized support but don’t typically replace your regular head pillows.
Each category comes with its own set of features including various stuffing materials, firmness levels, and covers that are easy to wash and maintain.
How to Choose Your Ideal Pregnancy Pillow
Selecting a pregnancy pillow is a personal choice, but there are key factors to consider:
Targeted Support: Choose a pillow that alleviates pain in your problem areas.
Design: Think about your sleeping habits and choose a design that accommodates them.
Maintenance: Opt for pillows with washable covers, especially if you sweat a lot during sleep.
Compatibility: If you already have a pillow you love, find a pregnancy pillow that can be used alongside it.
Take your time to explore and even test different pillows to discover what suits you best. Quality sleep is invaluable during pregnancy, making it worth the effort to find your perfect pregnancy pillow.
Introducing Award-Winning Options: B.LOVE 2in1 and B.Love XXL Large Wraparound Pillow by Babymoov
At Mari Kali, we are always at the forefront of innovative baby and maternity solutions. We are thrilled to introduce two groundbreaking products that have revolutionized the pregnancy pillow market.
B.LOVE 2in1: This is not just a pregnancy pillow; it’s a multi-functional gem that transforms into a feeding pillow. Honored with an award at the prestigious Kind und Jugend 2023 fair, this pillow offers unparalleled flexibility. It comes with two covers that allow you to effortlessly switch its function, ensuring that it remains useful beyond the pregnancy stage.
B.Love XXL Large Wraparound Pregnancy and Breastfeeding Pillow: This pillow takes the concept of support to the next level. Its grand wraparound design provides comprehensive comfort. What sets it apart is its detachable attachment. When unzipped, it transforms into a smaller, U-shaped pillow perfect for breastfeeding and feeding in general.
While both these options come at a premium, they are an excellent investment for anyone looking for multi-stage utility and lasting quality.
How to Use Mari Kali’s Pregnancy Pillows
Depending on the shape and style of the pillow you choose, it's crucial to position it where you experience the most discomfort. For instance, with a U-shaped pillow, your head would rest on the bend, while your knees would be cushioned by the other end. For wedge pillows, position them wherever you need targeted support.
Remember, these pillows are not just for pregnancy; they are versatile enough to assist you post-pregnancy during breastfeeding or even just to enjoy a good night’s sleep.
