Getting a good night’s sleep is an important part of ensuring both mum and baby have a healthy pregnancy and that baby develops properly in the womb. Studies show that a lack of sleep during pregnancy can increase risks of complications, such as pre-eclampsia – a condition that can potentially lead to dangerous fits if not treated.
However, getting a peaceful and restful night while pregnant is not easy for a lot of expecting mothers. Google searches for queries such as ‘sleep comfortably pregnant’, ‘comfortable sleeping positions while pregnant’ and ‘can’t sleep while pregnant’ come up with thousands upon thousands of results, showing that it is a common problem. In fact, in a 2007 survey conducted by the National Sleep Foundation, more than 80% of pregnant women reported that they had difficulty sleeping. The lack of sleep often comes from aches, pains and the inability to find a comfortable position. 1 in 4 pregnant women suffer from SPD (Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction) during pregnancy, which is a condition that causes pain and discomfort in the pelvic area, particularly the midline joint that connects the left and right pubic bones.
The Dreamgenii pillow was designed and created for mums, by a mother who had also suffered with sleep problems and discomfort while in bed. The unique ‘seven’ shape provides support to the bump, the back and the knees – all of which are under a lot of strain on a day-to-day basis. The pillow fits well around the shape of the body, providing maximum comfort.
According to midwives, the best position to sleep in during pregnancy is on the left side of the body. Mum sleeping on her left side will increase the amount of blood and nutrients that reach the placenta and her baby. This also helps baby to adopt the optimum birth position. It is also recommended to sleep with a pillow between the legs. The Dreamgenii is great for this, as the long part of its ‘seven’ shape fits comfortably between the legs and allows mum to easily sleep on her left side.
Once baby is born, the Dreamgenii pillow also can be used as a feeding support by helping to lift baby up into the right position to latch on to mum’s breast! Also, according to some of the mums who have used the Dreamgenii pillow, toddlers also love snuggling up to the pillows as it cocoons them and gives them something to hold while sleeping! This makes it dual-purpose and a great product for both during and after pregnancy!
