The Most Comfortable Pregnancy Sleeping Position To Relieve Lower Back & Hip Pain
Sleeping well is so important during pregnancy to have you feeling full of energy and refreshed for the day ahead. Most pregnant women get uncomfortable during the night and as a result find it difficult to sleep well.
TOP TIP: The pillow between the knees is an urban myth. It puts too much pressure on the bottom leg, the knee joint twists which then twists the hip joint and pulls on the lower back. Sleeping with the pillow in foetal position further pulls on the buttocks and lower back muscles and if not supported correctly makes your spine twist. The pillow between your knees also puts pressure on your bladder so more getting up in the night. You also reduce space for your baby which means more kicking.
The Mumanu pillow relieves these problems by keeping your hip, knee and foot at the same height. It’s self-inflating so you adjust it to fit you perfectly. This position allows you to fully relax, takes pressure off your bladder and gives your baby extra space to be comfortable.
The hormone Relaxin makes your joints loser during pregnancy so it’s even more important than normal to get correctly aligned and super comfortable.
To relieve that pulling, heavy feeling in your belly, place a contoured pregnancy belly wedge under your belly to gently lift and bring your pregnant bump up to a neutral position.
