Pregnancy Pillows | Premium U-Shaped Pregnancy Pillow With Lavender & FairyBeads Filling | Review ♥

Now that I'm in my third trimester of pregnancy I've been finding it quite difficult to get comfortable in bed at night. Our bed is quite low down, which makes it quite difficult to get out of for those middle of the night bathroom trips and I'm beginning to find it impossible to find a comfy position for my bump. Thankfully, the lovely people at Pregnancy Pillows got in touch and asked if I'd like to review one of their wonderful pregnancy pillows and I of course accepted - my bump was in desperate need of some comfort!

The pillow I chose from their range was the Premium U-Shaped Pregnancy Pillow (£40) which comes with a lavender lining and fairy beads filling. The pillow comes in a choice of seven colours and I chose the lovely sky blue to match my shabby chic bedding. When the pillow arrived I was surprised at how long it was, it's the length of my king size bed which makes for maximum comfort at night or when I'm simply relaxing on the bed during the day.

I shared a picture of my pillow on my Instagram @dollydowsie on the day it arrived and it had a great response with people immediately stating that they had to go and get one for themselves too, well I couldn't recommend it enough for anyone who is expecting and is need of some bump and back support at night or for nap time.

The pillow is super comfortable, it's like lying on a huge beanbag and the fairybeads filling contour to the shape of your head and body too. The fairy beads filling is also anti-allergenic. The U-shape allows me to pop my leg up on the pillow, which in turn supports my bump, the other side of the pillow then supports my back and it's great to have this support, especially at 29 weeks. The outer fabric of the pillow is baby soft and is stretchy too, this makes for maximum comfort for my bump and I. This outer fabric is also removable and machine washable which is great as my toddler loves to lay on it too and has gotten chocolate on it more than once - the horror! The inner fabric of the pillow is lined with lavender which makes for a relaxing aroma, great for sending me off to a peaceful sleep or nap time.

 The Premium U-Shaped Pregnancy Pillow offers -
  • Pressure relief to make sleeping on your side possible
  • Alleviates back and muscle pains
  • Can be used as pain relief for symphsis pubis dysfunction
  • Can be used as pain relief for fibromyalgia
  • Can be used as pain relief for arthritis
  • Can be used as pain relief for upper back, shoulder and neck pain
  • Can be used as pain relief for lower body pain
This pillow has been a great support to me during the latter half of my second trimester and now during my third trimester too. It's helped massively with my lower back and hip pain which seems to flair up at night and it really is one of the comfiest things I've ever lay on. I'm going to continue using it after baby arrives too and think it will also be a great support when feeding baby during the night feeds.

You can find the Premium U-Shaped Pregnancy Pillow (£40) on the Pregnancy Pillows website where you can also browse through their other fantastic pillow options for pregnancy and nursing.
