Relieves Back and Hip Pain
Many women suffer from back and hip pain during pregnancy. This is from the downward drag of the growing belly causing the hips to roll forward and the loosening of ligaments due to the hormone relaxin.
The Bellybean Maternity Pillow supports your growing belly and prevents this. You can also lean into the Bellybean for support knowing that you won’t end up on your back.
Being supported from the front and back keeps the hips in great alignment thus reducing the amount of pain caused by loosening of joints and nerve pinching.
Relaxin is a hormone produced by the ovary and the placenta with important effects in the female reproductive system and during pregnancy. In preparation for childbirth, it relaxes the ligaments in the pelvis and softens and widens the cervix.
Doctors recommend side sleeping during pregnancy to alleviate pressure on the spine and to maximise blood flow.
The Bellybean Maternity Pillow’s unique double sided design supports side sleeping equally on both sides.
