Dreaming of a good night's sleep?

There can be many reasons for discomfort and disturbed sleep quality during pregnancy but one common reason is that you simply aren’t getting enough rest during the day. Being constantly on the go takes a lot of energy from your pregnant body. In the afternoon and evening you may start to feel aches and pains as you only have a certain level of energy and muscle power, especially in the later stages of your pregnancy. Try not to use all of your energy during the daytime, if you spread your activity equally throughout the day you won’t be so tired in the evening. To help prevent pain and discomfort in at night time try to plan and take rest breaks during the day;

  • Work for 60-90 minutes

  • Take a 10 minute break, even if you don’t feel like you need it

  •  Repeat throughout the day

If you can find a place to lay down during your breaks this will give you all-important relief for your lower back, belly, knees and ankles. If there’s no sofa or bench at work, invest in a yoga mat and pillow and simply use the floor. If you practice this throughout the day your body is given the chance to recover and you will feel less pain and discomfort in the evening when all you want to do is sleep. Your body and your energy levels will thank you! The bbhugme® pregnancy pillow is designed to give optimal support for your lower back, belly, knees and ankles.


A well rested body makes your pregnancy easier as well as improving your quality of life.
