How a Wedge Pillow Can Help Your Pregnancy

You always hear that pregnancy is a joyous time. That the anticipation of what’s to come, the planning for the future, and those little flutters in your growing stomach makes it all worthwhile. It’s all very nice and delightful, but what you don’t hear about is all of the aches, all of the pains, and all the stress that you have to live through while you grow that little bundle of joy. Many women will attest to the fact that a growing baby bump and expanding hips can make it extremely hard for you to get a good night’s sleep, or to sit comfortably. Fortunately there are sleeping aids that can help, and one of the most helpful is a wedge pillow.  

Pregnancy pillows are a growing phenomenon in the world, each purporting to be able to help women regain their restful sleep during their pregnancy. These pregnancy pillows come in various shapes and sizes, but a pillow wedge alone can provide all the comfort a pregnant woman needs.

Some people may say that you can replicate the benefits just by stacking pillows. However, simply stacking pillows under your head causes harmful stress on the upper cervical nerves, disrupts blood flow, and makes breathing more difficult. To avoid these dangers, Xtreme Comforts created the XW Wedge Pillow, which exemplifies all the benefits of a pregnancy pillow, a pillow wedge, and more.


Discomfort During Pregnancy Can Often Be Helped with a Pregnancy Pillow

During pregnancy, the rapid changes in your body can negatively affect your sleep and comfort. It’s no secret that the growing fetus, expanding stomach, and changing hormones can create some uncomfortable challenges in day-to-day life. When a woman is pregnant, she not only has to take into account her own comfort and well-being, but also that of her unborn child. As such, many things need to be taken into consideration.

Sleep is going to become especially challenging during pregnancy. Often a woman in her second or third trimester will find it difficult to sleep for a variety of reasons. For instance, her doctor will recommend that she sleeps on her left side to increase circulation. Circulation in the growing stomach and fetus is very important for maintaining its healthy growth and development. Unfortunately, this sleeping position isn’t always the easiest to adjust to. Women who are accustomed to sleeping on their back or stomach will need extra time to get used to this change. Even those who already sleep on their sides will be faced by a new challenge with their growing bodies: supporting their stomach! I bet that’s something you can add to the list of things you weren’t told would happen when you got pregnant!

As important as sleep is, pregnancy can also affect your everyday comfort. You may find that even sitting is a challenge when you are pregnant. Your hips and legs will cramp and cause pain, you may suffer from back aches, or even shortness of breath. Fortunately, there are options to help regain your comfort and allow you to get that quality sleep you need and deserve.

Using a pregnancy pillow is a common and proven solution to many uncomfortable problems in pregnancy. There are many kinds of pregnancy pillows out there, and even more brands to choose from, but this can cause some confusion about what to buy and what to use.

However, there is no doubt that a high-quality pillow proven to meet all of your needs is what you require during your pregnancy. These types of pillows cannot be found in a department store. They won’t be found lumped together with other mass produced pillows that provide no guarantee that they’ll work as they are advertised. So, where do you start?


A Wedge Pillow Is Ideal for Soothing Sleep and Comfort Issues

Though pregnancy pillows come in many shapes and sizes, a wedge pillow has several advantages over its competition. Xtreme Comforts has taken the standard sleeping pillow wedge and improved upon it. Combining memory foam, triangular design, and a bamboo pillow case, the XW Wedge Pillow provides a sleeping experience and a return to comfort that is second to none. Since the company knew they were designing the next evolution of pillow wedge, they incorporated several aids in one exemplary pillow.

Here are 5 reasons why a Wedge Pillow is the perfect pregnancy pillow:


1. Helps Blood Circulate

A wedge pillow should never go flat! It should remain uniform in density and conform to your shape. So, when a doctor recommends that you sleep on your side to help blood circulation, be sure you know that what you’re using will keep its shape and stay comfortable.

Created with high quality memory foam, the XW Wedge Pillow will help ensure you maintain that side position for your entire pregnancy and beyond. The XW Wedge Pillow helps the mother-to-be remain comfortable, which in turn helps the baby grow and develop. This bed wedge will provide comfort and security while promoting circulation throughout your pregnancy. 


2. Prevents Body Aches

Unfortunately, between the growing baby inside, and the growing stomach outside, sleeping often becomes uncomfortable. Staying in one position for too long without support will hinder sleep and cause aches and pains throughout the body.

Fortunately, using a wedge pillow for sleeping will help combat those aches and pains. With a triangular design, placing a bed wedge pillow underneath the stomach will help alleviate this by providing support to the stomach and baby.

Having trouble maintaining the side position? Just place a wedge pillow behind your back to ensure that you stay comfortable on your side all night long. 


3. Versatility

One of the greatest things about high quality wedge pillows, besides having dense memory foam construction and breathable channels, is its multipurpose nature! It can be used in many ways to ensure comfort and rest during your pregnancy.

Triangular in shape, created with premium quality breathable memory foam, a good wedge pillow can do just about anything. Of a reasonable size, you can take it with you wherever you go, ensuring that comfort goes with you.

Using a bed support pillow will successfully keep your upper body elevated, properly align your spine and provide you instant back and neck pain relief. They’re ideal for reading, surfing the net, pregnancy, deep sleeping, winter colds, post nasal dripping, and leg discomfort as well. Improve blood circulation, reduce feet swelling and enhance breathing all at once!


4. Improve Health Substantially

As already mentioned, a wedge pillow can help increase blood circulation and maintain sleeping position, but it can do so much more.

If you are suffering from stomach acid reflux and heartburns, then a wedge pillow can help make a difference. This memory foam pillow helps relieve symptoms of snoring, and heartburn due to acid reflux. Forget all about persistent snoring, coughing, headaches and migraines once and for all with the invaluable help of a wedge pillow!

5. Easy To Care For and Risk Free

A wedge pillow that comes with a bamboo pillow cover that is easy to remove and is machine washable is something you should seriously consider in your search for the ultimate pregnancy pillow.
