Medical research shows that the wrong sleeping position during pregnancy will increase your chances of having a still birth. We believe that by choosing the right pregnancy pillow you will be able to avoid those dangerous positions.
We had some of our customers asking us if a pregnancy pillow can prevent still birth. That is not an easy question to answer. Let’s have a look at some of the medical information available. In a recent interview on Australian Nine News Sophie Scott spoke to Dr Adrienne Gordon, a neonatologist from Sydney's Royal Prince Alfred Hospital. Dr Gordon conducted a study of 300 pregnant women and found that there is a link between how women sleep during their pregnancies and the incidence of stillborn babies. Her study showed that women sleeping on their backs in the later stages of pregnancy were six times more likely to have a stillborn baby. Here is an extract from that interview:
Is it safe to use a pregnancy pillow?
What do medical experts say about the use of pregnancy pillows?
Should you be using one?
The joy, expectation and anticipation that a pregnant woman is supposed to feel can often be clouded by lack of sleep. Although hormonal changes can contribute to minor insomnia often the only thing standing between an expectant mom and a good night’s rest is adequate support for her and her growing baby!
Doctor’s agree that pregnant women who are offered sufficient support will experience some relief from pressure on their abdominal nerves and uterus. There should also be an improvement in heartburn and blood circulation in the legs.
One major concern on the mind of every pregnant woman is the safety and well-being of her and her unborn baby. When contemplating whether or not to invest in a pregnancy pillow for added comfort and support, it is important to be able to ask questions should there be any safety concerns.
