During pregnancy, a woman’s body goes through a number of changes, and as all mummas know, it can be really difficult getting comfortable, especially during the third trimester. Aches and pains are an expected and unavoidable part of being pregnant, but the perfect remedy and ultimate pregnancy essential is a pregnancy pillow.

It’s recommended by parents week, and here at NBS, we’ll always recommend the bbhugme pregnancy pillow, and we can confirm that our parent reviewers would agree. Known for being one of the best pillows on the market, the bbhugme pregnancy pillow is a must-have for expecting mums, in this blog, we’re going to tell you why.

Who are bbhugme?

bbhugme was created by three chiropractors from Norway, Hilde, Ann Kristin and Elisabeth. They were always seeing teary, sleep deprived women suffering from pelvic and back pain both during and after pregnancy. Together they realised that women needed more support and care than what was out there, and a long-lasting, take-home solution that could keep them comfortable and look after them beyond the care they received at clinics.

From this need and a real passion for the wellbeing of women, the bbhugme pregnancy pillow was born.

“I’m passionate about supporting and caring for women and their partners through pregnancy, birth and infancy.”  - Dr Hilde Tavares, chiropractor and co-founder, bbhugme

bbhugme is now sold and loved by parents around the world and has since grown their product portfolio to offer more supportive solutions for families like their nursing pillow. What remains the same since the very beginning is that bbhugme is driven by professionalism, passion and care for pregnant women and mothers.

Pillows with Purpose

The longer a product lasts, the lower its environmental impact. To help reduce their impact, bbhugme create high quality and long-lasting products made from materials that are super durable, meaning your bbhugme pillow will last for years. If you no longer use your bbhugme pillow, you can pass it on to someone else, or give it a new lease of life with a new cover which can be bought separately in a variety of stunning colours.

bbhugme make sure their products are manufactured and sourced sustainably by focusing on independent certifications of suppliers. In all aspects of the production process, they are continuously looking for opportunities to minimise their environmental impact.

Plus, all their products are made from recyclable materials. So, when the time does come for you to part with your bbhugme product, you can recycle it. They have also removed plastic in their packaging, so their pillows come in textile bags that look great and are also practical for storage.

bbhugme Pregnancy Pillow

Known for being one of the best pregnancy pillows on the market, the bbhugme pregnancy pillow is truly a product expecting mothers can count on.

When designing the pillow, chiropractors Hilde, Ann Kristin and Elisabeth focused on the details that mattered, making sure the pillow was the perfect shape, size, and made from the right materials with the right filling so it could provide support for all body types. They also wanted to make sure the pillow was hypoallergenic and eco-friendly. So, expecting parents can be certain that the bbhugme pregnancy pillow truly has it all.

The bbhugme pregnancy pillow is designed to grow with you and your baby, and help you sleep and rest comfortably throughout your pregnancy by providing unique five-point body support in the most critical areas: belly, lower back, pelvis, knees, and ankles. The pillow is fully adjustable, allowing you to find the right firmness and shape to support your body as it grows and changes, from the first trimester and beyond. It is also anti-bacterial and has a super soft cover made from 95% cotton and 5% spandex for versatility and ease.

Parent Approved

As it’s recommended by parents week here at NBS, we thought we would raise awareness around how great the bbhugme pregnancy pillow is, what makes it different to other pillows on the market and why parents love it so much.

Here are just a few comments from our parent reviewers about the bbhugme pregnancy pillow:

“The bbhugme has been a life saver for me during my fourth pregnancy and really helped me with my PGP and sleeping better overall! I wish I had one for my previous pregnancies!”

Katie Westwood, Parent Tester

“The quality of the pillow itself is really striking as the cover is super soft, and the pillow is really malleable, not like a traditional beanbag. While I haven't used the pillow to sleep, I have been using it every day to lie in bed or on the sofa to read or watch TV.”

Dr Nabiha Mohammed, Parent Tester

“It really eased my back pain having the support of the pillow. I also thought it was great that I could use this pillow to lay on my front. My partner always gives me back rubs but since being pregnant I haven't been able to lay on my front, until now! It was amazing how comfortable it was to be able to be in this position, the pillow supported me perfectly so then no pressure was pushed onto my bump.”

Cassie Mayers, Parent Tester

“I would highly recommend this pillow to already mums and dads and to the new mums and dads to be. Since NYE this pillow has not left my side and not a night has gone by where I haven’t used it while sleeping in bed. It’s been a game changer for me.”

Hannah-Louise Watkins, Parent Tester
