Best maternity pillows

We put the UK’s top maternity pillows to the test and are confident that the best in the category is the super supportive and unobtrusive Dreamgenii Pregnancy Pillow

Best Maternity Pillow 2018

Dreamgenii

A maternity pillow is specially designed to make pregnant women more comfortable, both in bed and when relaxing or sitting. While pregnant, your quality of sleep is hugely important – not least because there’s a baby on the way – so anything you can do to get more rest is a bonus.

After weeks of testing (and snoozing) we found the Dreamgenii Pillow to be the best product for overnight sleep during pregnancy. It's easy-to-move shape offers plenty of support without compromising on space in the bed.

Its manoeuvrability and light weight also meant it was a dream to transport and store, which is great if you intend to escape from DH for a couple of hours stay overnight with friends and relatives.

While maternity pillows are often pretty sizeable, we found the Dreamgenii to be unobtrusive, leaving plenty of space in the bed for you and your partner.

But what really makes this pillow unique is its shape, consisting of a long, supportive pillow attached to a padded back support. The padding helps to discourage you from rolling onto your back during the night, and you can even choose whether you’d rather sleep with the pillow in front supporting your bump, or at your back, stopping you from rolling over.

The leg support pillow is totally versatile, and can be used from either in front or behind, making the multi-shaped pillow helpful for many different sleeping positions. If you’re a light sleeper who tends to move around a lot, this pillow would stay comfortable and supportive no matter what position you end up in.

The pillow therefore provides ample support to your whole body, and allows you to turn over easily during the night.
