“This pillow was a life saver all throughout my pregnancy. Lightweight, small and easy to use, it provided me with so much support for my growing belly and ensured I was sleeping in a safe position for me and baby.

What do reviewers say?

“Around 20 weeks of pregnancy, I decided to jump in and give this a try and I’m so glad I did! From day one I have had no back pain upon waking up,” one review said.

“This pillow is amazing. I bought it when I was 3 months pregnant. Sometimes I sleep with it in the front and sometimes in the back. It’s extremely comfortable and supportive either way. I like it better than a regular body pillow because it doesn’t wiggle away from you during the night,” another Snoogle fan revealed.

What do reviewers say?

“So far, this purchase has been my single greatest move as the husband of a pregnant wife,” one gent posted on Amazon.

“I am currently 24 weeks pregnant and wish I would have purchased this earlier,” one mum-to-be wrote. “I have been having bad issues with my lower back and left leg sciatica pain and numbness since pretty early on in pregnancy. I found myself always falling asleep on my side and waking on my back, in pain. This pillow is a game changer! Because of the shape, I can wrap it in such a way that how I fall asleep is how I wake up and I’m still comfortable. I haven’t had leg pain since using this pillow.”
