Getting comfortable in the third trimester of pregnancy is a struggle. And comfort is only the half of it.
Four major studies have shown the risk of miscarriage or stillbirth DOUBLES for women who sleep on their backs and stomachs.
There is a large vein - the vena cava - that runs under the right side of the uterus. A woman sleeping on her back can constrict the flow of blood through this vein, and decrease or entirely cut off blood flow to the uterus.
Obstetricians agree that sleeping on the left side is healthiest for both mother and baby, because it takes the pressure off the vena cava, and keeps mom more comfortable at the same time.
That's the science. What's the solution?
The unique shape of My Butterfly Pillow® not only supports the neck and shoulders comfortably throughout the night, but the "wings" of the pillow also train the sleeper to naturally stay on their side without flipping to their back.
My Butterfly Pillow also has Bluetooth-adapted speakers built in, which is great for expectant mothers who practice relaxed breathing and guided meditation as part of their birth plan.
Consider this your S.O.S. - Sleep On Side. For you, and for your baby.
