Health Tip: Choosing a Pregnancy Pillow
-- Sleeping comfortably can be a struggle during pregnancy, especially in the later months. A special pregnancy pillow may help you get a better night's rest.
Here's advice from the National Sleep Foundation:
- Start using extra pillows that you already have. Adjust their placement in different ways to find out if you get the support you need.
- Put a pillow between your knees when you sleep on your left side. Place another pillow behind your back to keep you from rolling to the right.
- Place another pillow beneath your belly for extra support.
- If these suggestions don't work, shop for a pregnancy pillow that provides support in just the right spots. There are long body-length pillows or those that fit a specific area.
