Health Tip: Choosing a Pregnancy Pillow

It could help you sleep better

(HealthDay News) -- 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.
