Let me clear it there are no any specific way to use those pillows. But you have to use it in right way to get the maximum benefits from it. Let me discuss some of the methods


1.       Note the problems you are facing. If you are using the pregnancy pillow for back pain or shoulder pain, I will suggest you to go for a u-shape or c-shape pillows. Use it reverse position in sleeping time so that your back can have enough support.


2.       You should always remember that whatever you do you have to have a lower stomach support. Position the pillows underneath your belly and neck. That will keep the blood and air circulation normal and convenient and easy.


3.       Don’t try a pillow which is heavy and bigger than the size you used to use. Ultra heavy pillows are not good for carrying it’s also delivers not that much comfort you desire. Always try a lightweight pillow, it’s easily carry able and convenient to use.


4.       Always use warm filling for the pregnancy pillow. I mean you have a wide range of choosing form from to pollsters. But it should be depend on your comfort zone.


5.       For the cover I will recommend the cotton cover. The pregnancy pillow cover makes direct contact to your body and it’s the medium that provides the main feels. The cotton covers are easy to wash and change. It remain new after 3-4 wash.


6.       If you use the pregnancy pillows in summer time than use have to wash your pillow after every month of usage. In winter you can just bring your pillow outside and make it warm.


7.       Always place the pillow between your arms and legs. It’s keep the womb warm and prevent uncomfortable pressure. One of the key part of using pregnancy pillows is to not put pressure in the lower joint and sensitive pregnancy parts.

Every pregnancy pillows have a differ jobs to do. But all are made for comfort and give you a perfect sleep. If you go for any fancy product that cannot fulfill your need there is no purpose to go fancy. The council of American gynecologist recommend to use those pillows which are exactly made for the pregnancy.


The pregnancy pillows also useful after pregnancy, As an example I can say, I am mother of two toddler but I use pregnancy pillows still now for my back and knee pain.
