As your pregnancy progresses, you may find it increasingly difficult to get a good night's sleep. Your growing belly as well as your back, hips, legs, neck and shoulders may all need extra support. Some women also seek relief from acid reflux by elevating their heads and upper backs or from swollen feet and ankles by elevating their feet. Pregnancy pillows are designed to meet these needs.
The simplest and smallest type of pregnancy pillow is a wedge pillow, which may be triangular or shaped like a half moon. A wedge can be placed beneath your head, back, belly or feet to provide elevation and support. Wedges tend to be relatively inexpensive and don't take up too much space in your bed, so they can be a good choice if you just need a bit of support in one part of your body.
Other pregnancy pillows are designed to support several parts of your body at once. These pillows are larger and come in a range of shapes. Two of the most common types are c-shaped pillows and u-shaped pillows. C-shaped pillows are designed to support your hips and belly and usually your head, while u-shaped pillows support the full length of your back as well.
