One of the most important things to remember when it comes to sleeping (or trying to!) when you’re pregnant is to sleep on your left side. Sleeping on your left side optimizes blood flow to the placenta and, therefore, the baby.
When pregnant with my son, I grabbed all of the pillows from around the house to build a little nest around my belly. I did this to avoid rolling onto my back while sleeping. My husband lovingly called it “Pillowmanjaro”, his take on Kilimanjaro! It was a little comic relief, but its purpose was very serious.
Utterly Yours has come up with a genius way to rid our bed of “pillowmanjaro” this pregnancy.
Made with eco-friendly memory foam, the Utterly Yours Pregnancy Pillow has the right balance of comfort and support in an attractive package. In a variety of color schemes, these soft cubes are the perfect tool you’ll need for sleeping comfortably during pregnancy.
The Utterly Yours Pregnancy Pillow features:
- Small & Compact, easy to store & travel with
- Removable cover for easy washing
- Great Back Support
- Offers support for sleeping on your left side
- Proven to reduce back pain
- Comes in several stylish patterns
The Utterly Yours Pregnancy Pillow is so easy to use. Simply unbutton the top, lay it down where you’ll be snoozing and then lay yourself between the wedges. You can easily adjust how far the softer wedge goes under your belly. In the morning you can button it back up and it’s a nice decorative pillow on your bed spread.

Utterly Yours offers three different size pillows to better accommodate different size mommies.
I tried out the Pregnancy pillow over a few nights and could really see how it would be helpful when I was sporting a large pregnant belly with my son. When you’re eight or nine months pregnant your belly needs some support. Rather than trying to shove a random pillow under your side, the pregnancy pillow by Utterly Yours gives you the comfort that you need while sleeping in the latter part of pregnancy.
My husband wanted to give it a try, too! I told him we need to get him a Utterly Yours Pregnancy Pillow to keep him from snoring. When he lays on his side he doesn’t snore! He didn’t think that was a clever idea though, because they’re designed for pregnant women!
As for me, I can’t wait to sleep comfortably on my left side when my belly gets a little bigger.
