The Today’s Mom Cozy Comfort Pregnancy Pillow is an enormous pillow square, which is designed to nestle you in the space in the middle, supporting both your back and belly, and allowing you to tuck the ends of the pillow between your legs to help with hip pain (by opening up the pelvic bones).
It’s hard to see in the picture, but the cut-out bits in the middle are contoured, so that they curve around the shoulder, spine and belly, for maximum support. This pillow should make it much easier to sleep comfortably on your side in the recommended position for pregnancy. The cover is removable, and some users have reported that the pillow is more comfortable if you make your own pillow case. Please note that this is not a small pillow – if you sleep on a standard double bed, you may have to relegate your husband to the guest room! But at least you will get a sound night’s sleep.

The Boppy Total Body Pillow, sometimes known as the Boppy Pregnancy Pillow, is a full length curved pillow with stitched channels to help keep the fluffy stuffing in place. It allows you to sleep in a variety of positions, providing support for the back and hips. You can also fold it to support you when reclining or sitting up in bed.
It’s designed to be slightly smaller than the standard body pillow, taking up less room in the bed. This pillow is ideal for petite women.
It comes with a soft removable pillowcase in pima cotton that is machine washable.
The Snoozer Hypoallergenic Full Body Pillow is filled with a synthetic down made from siliconized polyester fiber. This makes the pillow soft and malleable.
It’s 100% hypoallergenic and has a patented design to promote proper spinal alignment and is designed to move with the body during sleep, in all the normal sleep positions. You can also use it as a nursing support once your baby is born, by curling it around you so the baby rests on the pillow while it feeds.
It comes with a custom pillowcase.
The Serenity Star Pillow – Transitional Body Maternity Pillow is a u-shaped pillow made of three pieces, which curves round your body as you sleep. It’s soft and comfortable, allowing you to make a nest within the pillow. It is machine washable and comes with a good quality custom-made pillow-case which zips up on the outside edge of the pillow (so that your body never comes into contact with the zip).
It can also be used to support you and the baby when nursing, and to protect small pre-school children while they sleep.

Body pillows are enormous pillows that are designed to support your weight as you sleep. They are used in particular by pregnant women, whose awkward shape makes it difficult to sleep on a standard bed. They can however also be used by anyone suffering back-pain or hip-pain, as they support the weight of the body while asleep, thus relieving pressure on the spine and hips.
Body pillows come in many forms – there is the pregnancy wedge, which is a wedge shaped pillow that you insert under the baby bump, so that the bump has something to rest on while you lie on your side. Then there are the giant “C” shapes or “S” shapes, which are designed to curl around the body. The C and S shapes are particularly helpful if you are pregnant and suffer from hip-pain – you tuck the end of the C between your legs and this helps open the pelvic bones and relieve pressure. Some body pillows are simply giant oblongs or bolster-shapes that are there for you to hug while asleep.
