As soon as we found out we were expecting our second child, my husband and I began to think about all the fun our new love would bring into our lives. Being pregnant brings the excitement of picking out a name, beginning to plan the nursery decor and preparing our daughter to be a big sister. Unfortunately, being pregnant also brings the challenges of fitting into your favorite clothes, trying to control your emotions and, most challenging for me, to get comfortable enough to get a good night’s rest.
Enter the dreamgenii® pillow!
Everyone advises you when you are pregnant to get lots of rest, but when you are not comfortable that is not so easy to do. However, the dreamgenii® pillow is a pregnant girl’s dream come true. It is not large and cumbersome like the body pillow or several other pregnancy pillows I have tried in the past. Another advantage of the dreamgenii® is that it supports you on both sides. That way when you roll over you do not have to bring the whole pillow with you, it can stay in place because it surrounds you.
The Dreamgenii makes getting a good night’s rest possible and therefore takes away one of the challenges of being pregnant so you can focus on the excitement of expecting.
“The patented dreamgenii® Pregnancy Pillow is Recommended by Midwives across the UK and is recognised as the only specifically designed pregnancy pillow to adequately support back, bump and knees at the same time without taking up all of the room in the bed. It encourages you to lie on your left side which is the best position for mother and baby (But is just as comfortable on your right by passing the leg support through the back of your knees) and gently prevents you from rolling on to your back during your sleep (Which can restrict bloodflow to your baby). Using the dreamgenii® Maternity Pillow from about 20 weeks pregnant, can also encourage your baby to adopt the optimal birth position which can mean a shorter and less painful labour. The dreamgenii pregnancy pillow used as a breastfeeding support, is designed to support your back during feeding and keep the baby at the correct height and position for breastfeeding.” — dreamgenii.com
