Organic Wool Mattresses for Pregnancy
Best Natural Bedding for Pregnant Women
Pregnant bodies undergo a lot of changes in a relatively short amount of time. Many women spend the final months of their pregnancy sleep deprived and sore. There are many reasons sleep is hard to come by, especially as you get closer to your due date. Fortunately, organic bedding from The Wool Bed Company™ help pregnant women get the sleep they need through every trimester.
Sleep soundly knowing you aren’t exposing your growing baby to anything harmful. Our ECO-Pure™ Wool bedding is made naturally without dangerous toxins, harsh chemicals, and irritating dyes. From mattresses to pillows, all of our products are fully organic.
Comfortable Pregnancy Sleep Positions
Sometimes, getting enough rest will depend on your sleep position. Find out which sleep position is best for staying comfortable throughout the night and get the answers to common questions from pregnant women:
How Long Can I Sleep On My Stomach?
If you normally sleep on your belly, you’ll have to find a new sleep position. Around the second trimester, most women find sleeping on their stomach uncomfortable due to the size of their growing tummy. Using a wool pillow for support can allow you to sleep in this position longer.
Should I Sleep On My Back?
Early on, your sleeping on your back is totally acceptable (and comfortable). As your baby grows, your health will be at risk in this position. The increased weight on your organs during the night can lead to breathing problems, heartburn, and decreased blood circulation.
Sleeping in a reclined, seated position is one of the times sleeping on your back is okay later in your pregnancy. This will help you regulate your breathing as your baby puts pressure on your lungs. Try using pillows to elevate your upper body while sleeping in this position, as it’s also likely to reduce heartburn and swelling in your limbs.
Which Side is Safest to Sleep On?
While it is acceptable to sleep on either side, women who rest on the left will increase the amount of nutrients your baby will receive while you sleep. Use pillows between your knees and under your back to keep your joints comfortable. You will need to rotate positions through the night.
Organic Body Pillows for Pregnancy Support
At The Wool Bed Company™, we sell organic wool body pillows perfect for pregnant women. These pillows are constructed organic cotton covers and are filled with ECO-Pure™ Wool. Select between soft, medium, or firm fill to meet your comfort needs. Pick a side to sleep on and use the body pillow to support your knees, abdomen, and head.
Wool bedding is naturally supportive due to high loft from tufting. Each mattress, topper, and pillow is handmade for a high quality finish. We even offer a special renewal program to keep your wool fill comfortable and clean.
More Tips for Better Sleep While Pregnant
- While you don’t need to run a marathon every day, try to take some time to focus on fitness. Go for a walk around the neighborhood, take a prenatal yoga class, or try meditating. A little extra activity earlier in the day will make it easier to get to sleep at night.
- Tired of bathroom breaks interrupting your sleep? Since your baby is growing right next to your bladder, you don’t have a lot of options. However, avoiding water and other drinks about 3 hours before your planned bedtime will reduce your late night bathroom trips. Just make sure you stay hydrated.
- If you’re still unable to get quality sleep during the night or keep waking up, try a daytime nap. As long as you’re not dozing off for hours, a short 20-30 minute nap will help you get the sleep you’re unable to get at night.
