Many women experience a lot of discomfort pains and swelling during pregnancy. Some of the general aches and pains they experience are back, neck, shoulder, belly, ankle, feet, and knee pain. The discomfort they feel is usually caused by strain put on the back muscles, weight gain, changes in posture and hormonal changes. What seems to help a lot for expecting mothers is using a traditional full-length, curved pregnancy body pillow or adult body pillow. These types of pillows help alleviate body pain not just for expecting mothers but also for those who suffers from pain.
Body Pillow During Pregnancy:
There are a few pregnancy body pillows but my favorite is the U-Shaped Body Pregnancy Pillow. This type of pillow wraps around a portion or most of the body to support the back and discourage the body from rolling onto the back or sides while sleeping. Basically, it supports the belly while sleeping, watching tv, and reading. It also supports your arm or baby while breastfeeding. What’s also impressive about the Meiz U-Shaped body pillow is that it comes with a removable cover to easily remove and throw in the wash.
How To Prevent Body Pain:
- make sure your bed is firm.
- do not stand for long periods.
- sit on comfortable chairs with good back support.
- wear comfortable shoes.
- avoid lifting.
- sleep on your one side and rotate position with a pillow between your legs.
- use a heating pad on low setting.
- take warm showers.
- massage achy area.
- maintain good posture.
