One of the joys of pregnancy is not sleeping well at night. From needing the toilet all the time to heartburn to just pure uncomfortableness, you name it, it will keep you awake. I’m convinced it’s to prepare you for the first months of having a newborn but you really do need to store up as much sleep as possible in those pre-baby months which can be hard to do when you are feeling uncomfortable.
So I was delighted when I was offered a Theraljne maternity pillow to review. These pillows have always looked great and I wasn’t disappointed.
Firstly the pillow comes packed in a smart storage bag. Perfect for keeping it clean when stored or travelling.
It also comes with a removable washable cover – an essential, especially if you will be using if post pregnancy as a feeding pillow. My pillow was a great purple colour but I believe it is available in other colours too.
The pillow itself is firm yet flexible. It works in a number of positions and makes it oh so comfy to sleep. It is brilliant for support when sitting up in bed too ( I usually spend the last month of pregnancy sleeping sitting up due to awful heartburn).
The pillow will also come in really handy when the baby is born too. I hope to breastfeed again and this pillow enables comfortable breastfeeding in those early days when you are getting to grip with things and I will likely be struggling with a c-section wound again.
For more information on this pillow and the other pillows that Theraline make check out their website. This pillow retails for £44.95 in John Lewis which I think is great value bearing in mind the value I place on sleep and that the pillow is great not only for maternity but also breastfeeding and beyond.
Disclosure – I was gifted this pillow for the purposes of the review. All opinions are honest and my own.
