There’s nothing we value more than a good night’s sleep.
It’s when your body and mind can finally rest from the stresses of your day, and a lack of sleep can make you cranky, headachey and miserable.
If you’re heavily pregnant or suffering pain, finding a comfortable position to drift off can seem impossible.
The PharMeDoc Pregnancy pillow is the latest hot product on Amazon, and, wow, we can see why.
It’s perfect for anyone struggling to get comfy at night.
If you’re not currently carrying a bundle of joy, no worries, this U-shaped pillow is for more than just pregnancy.
It’s also incredibly useful for anyone recovering from surgery, anyone with hip pain, back pain, gastric reflux, Crohn’s disease, sciatica, fibromyalgia, or anyone who simply likes to be utterly comfortable in bed and on the couch.
Is the pillow worth the hype?
Hmm, we’re not sure; maybe you should consult the 50,000+ gushing reviews it’s received on Amazon, with an average star rating of 4.3 out of 5.
It seems like it could be!
The ginormous pillow is shaped like a giant 'U', with one arm able to be zipped off and detached.
You can use this detachment as a large body pillow on its own or as part of the larger shape.
This side of the pillow is a little firmer than the rest of it, so it’s perfect as a sturdy back support or to be used to balance a book or laptop.
If laid straight, the pillow is nearly one-and-a-half metres long.
The pillow itself is super soft and cozy, made from 100% cotton.
Designed to support you
Due to its length, malleability and detachable arm, you can shape this pillow in whatever way you need.
The versatile design allows you to adjust the pillow to support you in your desired position.
This could be propping it up to sit comfortably, placing one side between your legs to elevate your hips while sleeping, or supporting yourself and your baby while nursing.
Because you’re going to be spending a lot of time cuddling up with this pillow, the masterminds behind the design have made it super easy to remove the cover and machine-wash it.
What people have to say
You wouldn’t be surprised that this pillow has thousands of rave reviews!
One person's sentiment that echoed the majority of reviews was: “Wow! This pillow makes sleeping so comfortable!”
For pregnant women, it seems like the perfect body pillow.
Many reviews explained how people had previously been making do with regular sleeping pillows shoved around their body for support and how their back pain had eased after using the PharMeDoc pillow regularly.
One review said, “It has been a delight. I sleep through so comfortably, and it supports my legs, bump and neck perfectly.”
And for those of us not pregnant, the reviews are much of the same.
One person who reported they suffered lifelong debilitating neck and back pain, said: “I’ve invested in a very expensive mattress but still no relief! Since using this pillow, these issues have become a distant memory."
