Best Pregnancy Pillows

When you find out you’re pregnant you probably have no idea that a giant pillow will end up being your best friend. 

Whether it’s early pregnancy insomnia or trying to get comfortable in the last few weeks, pregnancy and maternity pillows can be a lifesaver. And it's a worthwhile investment as you can use them as a nursing pillow for feeding when your baby arrives. 

There are loads of different types of pillows and you don’t have to spend a ton of money to find something that will help you float off to the land of snooze. If you like snuggling up then a full length or U-shaped pillow could be good for you. If you’re a wriggler then something smaller works better. 

You can use your pregnancy pillow to support your knees and ankles, take the pressure off your back, help you sleep on your side if you’re usually a back or stomach sleeper and prop you up to ease heartburn.

You’ve got to find the pregnancy pillow that works for you but we know other mums often come up trumps with recommendations. So we asked our 70,000+ strong community for their top picks.
