This pregnancy body pillow is great! It is huge and wraps around nicely, which offers great support for your back, hips, neck, legs, and head.

When I was pregnant with Bayleigh, my sciatic nerve acted up very badly pretty early (when I was around 12 weeks). This pillow was amazing at relieving that pain. 

I used this pillow for helping me stay off my back when I was pregnant with Zen. I never sleep on my back but for some reason, I was constantly waking up on my back. 

This caused problems breathing and horrible back and body pain. With this pillow, I was able to tuck it around me to make it more difficult to roll onto my back.

It is great for curling around you and tucking your legs over. It’s also great for a pregnant belly.

Brett even loves this pillow and has teased me about stealing it or even getting his own.

I still use it because it’s just such a great comfort. It’s a great head pillow and I love tucking my legs around it while sleeping on my side/belly. 

I have also used it as a sort of bumper guard while baby is on the big bed. It sits on the edge of the bed nicely and can be circled around close baby in if needed. It can also be used as a nursing support pillow.

The cover is machine washable. It can be a pain to get on after taking it off, but once you get the hang of it, you should be able to do it fairly easily.

I have seen some reviews about the zipper getting stuck and/or ripping. You just have to be pretty careful with it (no yanking, excessive pulling, etc). I haven’t had my zipper break at all. 

It does catch sometimes when putting the cover back on, but you just need to stuff some of the pillow more in the cover and/or pull the zipper back and then try to move it forward again.


  • Great large size that is perfect for curving the pillow to whatever shape/position you need
  • Removable and washable cover
  • Comes in a few different colors
  • Can be used for multiple things: pregnant belly and body support, cuddle pillow, nursing pillow, bumper guard while baby is on the bed, etc


  • Cover can be tedious to put back on once removed
  • Zipper may get stuck
  • It is a pretty decent sized pillow so it may take up a lot of room and probably wouldn’t be good on a smaller bed with two people
  • Is on the pricier side

I highly recommend this pillow, especially if you are having sciatic, back, or body pain. It is great for helping make sure you are staying off your back and it supports your body.
