Great design to fit around back and tummy comfortably
Quality / Performance
I've used this for both my pregnancies and its the best pillow ever, my partner even nicknamed it my second boyfriend because I cuddled up to it every night. Its so comfortable and easy to manoeuvre around even when heavily pregnant. I liked to tuck the long side in between my legs when my back or hips were hurting to keep them more aligned. The cover is easy to put on and take off too. I would definitely recommend this to every pregnant woman
When I was carrying my daughter this pillow saved me . I was suffering with sciatica and was having physio as my little.one was squashing my nerve. This pillow made my nerve at ease and saved my back from agony . It supports your bump too so you dont get that pulling feeling like if you would have laid on your side while pregnant with the bump pulling . This pillow saved me and my aches and pains . Even now I've had my baby now I still cant let this pillow go Haha
Encourages me to sleep on one side, and has really helped with the hip pain I was getting at night
If you want to roll over onto your other side it can be a bit of a faff to rearrange it
Quality / Performance
I was bought this for my birthday last week as I am now 21 weeks pregnant and was getting very uncomfortable hip pain at night. Took me a couple of nights to get used to it but it is really comfy and definitely helps my hips. I also like the fact that it isn't a giant pillow so doesn't take up loads of space in the bed. Just takes a bit of getting used to if you want to roll onto your other side but I am trying to use it to help me stay on my left side as is recommended in pregnancy.
I really didn’t like this at all. I kept trying it to get comfortable in bed but it just wasn’t for me. Due to the design you have to lay in a very specific place and position for the back and tummy support to be in the right place, and if you want to turn over in bed you pretty much have to get out of bed to turn the pillow over and then get back in - nightmare! I bought it based on really good reviews but it didn’t work for me. Good quality though!
My 4th pregnancy and this is by far the best support pillow I have ever used.
It shaped nicely around the bump.
It helped me from rolling onto my back during the last few months.
Once my daughter was born it was perfect for breast feeding. I would wrap it around my back for comfort and support and lay my daughter on top to feed. Now shes 5 months old we use it to support her sitting up on my bed. All round great product and have recommended it already to pregnant friends.
I found. That during the mid stages of my pregnancy that this product did not do much, I don’t feel the comfort that I needed to. However, by 7 months I needed this pillow like no other; I felt so comfortable with it and it became a necessity for me. The more pains and strains, the better this pillow is for you.
It's well designed to support back, bump and legs. It generally did the job of preventing me from rolling on my back and it was really comfy, particularly during my first pregnancy. However, during my second pregnancy it definitely didn't feel as 'plump' anymore - so I actually found normal puffy pillows better towards the end.
I am very happy with this pillow. It helps me not roll on my back during the night. It provides good support for my belly and between the legs. I do find that it gets quite squishy and you have to refresh the padding a bit just so it gets comfortable again
Pricey, doesn't prevent you from turning onto your back
Quality / Performance
Bought this maternity and nursing pillow and the quality is fantastic- worth the money- won't get ruined.
The main disadvantage for me was the fact that I sleep on my back and thought the back support would prevent me/remind me not to in the middle of the night, but it doesn't.
I am only 17 weeks but I already started to struggle to sleep so I decided to invest in a pregnancy pillow early. I have found it really comfy and good to get me to train myself to sleep on my side rather than my front or back! It’s soft but firm so it’s nice to support your back and growing bump and to cuddle up to although it does make me feel a bit separated from my partner. It is a relatively expensive buy when you feel it isn’t a ‘pregnancy necessity’ but it’s worth it if you want it.
Time consuming to put pillow back in after washing

I love my pregnancy pillow and couldn't sleep without it. Its the best christmas present I ever received from my hubby and I literally couldn't live without it. I would definitely recommend it for women who are having problems with their hips and pelvis like I have been.
I find it so hard to sleep with this pillow. It is too thin around the knee area. I have found it better with just a normal pillow between my legs as then they are fully supported. I just got back and hip pain using this pillow. I returned it to JL.
The best pillow ever. Helped me out through 2 pregnancies.
Just lie on your side between the 2 pillow points, stick the longer one between your legs and relax.
Only con, not so easy to change sides when wanting to roll to the other side.
But it helped so much!
I started using this pillow at around 20 weeks of pregnancy and used it till baby was born. Very easy to use, great size (I have a double size bed and husband didn't complaint about it!), comfortable. Husband sometimes uses it now as I don't need it anymore. What I found interesting was the back support, it really makes a difference, and prevents us from rolling into our back, so it keep us laying on the side. Good support on the bump as well. I machine washed the pillow protector several times and it still looks like new. Nothing bad to report.
I was lucky enough to be in with the chance of testing this product. I can honestly say i now can not sleep without it. I am currently pregnant with baby number 4 and have experienced SPD in this pregnancy. Going to bed with this pillow is the only relief i get, it also helps keep me on my left side which is best for baby and circulation. I cant recommend this product enough especially if you are having trouble with sleep or aches and pains. My baby is due in five weeks and can't wait to use it as a feeding pillow as well. It also comes with a pillow cover so there is no extra expense with this pillow.
I've been using the DreamGenii pregnancy support pillow for the past two weeks. I've definitely seen an improvement with my sleep, before I found myself tossing and turning all night, this pillow keeps me ina. Comfortable and supported position, offering both bump and back support which is crucial in the later stages of pregnancy. I particularly like the design of the pillow, but the back support could be a little wider. I found the pillow has help me keep aligned in my sleep, I've started to suffer with pelvic pain so the positioning of the pillow between my legs helps me to be more aligned whilst I sleep. I would definitely recommend this, and I look forward to using as a feeding pillow when the baby arrives.
If you manage to sleep well at night this is for you! If your like me and toss and turn all night then maybe not. Its designed for you to be able to sleep on one side only. I spent most of my first night trying this out fighting with it swapping it to each side I moved onto which resulted in me hardly sleeping! It does work well as a good support pillow as it bends to shape very well and would be perfect for breastfeeding support too.
Loving this 2 in 1 support pillow. It's very comfortable. I'm 22 weeks pregnant so only have a little bump at the moment but looking forward to using it when I'm bigger.
I think it has definitely helped me sleep better as i was struggling before using it
Would highly recommend
So for the past week I have been trying and testing this fantastic 2 in 1 pregnancy support pillow by dreamgenii and thought it was time to review! I’ll get straight to the point - this pillow is fantastic and I’ve definitely seen an improvement this week in my sleeping as it’s been rather restless due to crappy hip pain. Not only does it have a bump support, it has a back support cushion attached via centre panel and gives a generous leg support which is perfect for my frame/height. The Dreamgenii pregnancy support pillow is filled with a polyester hollow fibre which is so comfy and a must especially now I’m 28 weeks pregnant, comfort is key! Not only that, but it doubles up as a feeding pillow which I will be keen to try once little lady has arrived! Pillow it is great and I 100% recommend!
Not too bulky, works well to stop you rolling onto front or back
Feels uncomfortable behind back, goes flat in places, expensive
Quality / Performance
I have been using this pillow with the back part rolled up next to the front part as I found it far to uncomfortable to have the section behind my back as well as in front. I mainly use this pillow to stop me from rolling onto my front and also to put between my knees when lying on my side. It works well for this and doesn't take up too much room in the bed compared to other pregnancy pillows
Great product to help you through pregnancy. I was having problems sleeping before I brought this pillow but since I have used it, the pillow has provided me with the correct support in the right areas and help reduce any pain or discomfort. The pillow also keeps you in a position so you sleep on your left hand side which is meant to be the best position to sleep in during pregnancy. Hide
