Just about every woman who conceives children will experience back pain when pregnant. Back pain during pregnancy is one of the most, if not, the most common adversities that a pregnant woman will experience. Lower back pain when pregnant is especially common.
Lower back pain when pregnant can be attributed to a variety of different factors, the biggest being back strain caused by carrying the weight of ones child. That being said, often times mothers are tasked with the goal of finding pregnancy back pain relief.
As a pregnant woman progresses through her pregnancy, she may find that it becomes more and more difficult to find a comfortable position to sleep in. Usually during the hours of sleep when one lies down it allows for spinal decompression, therefore helping to alleviate back pain. It’s far more difficult to find a decompressing position in pregnancy however. A majority of women end up sleeping on their side, this however doesn’t really allow for optimal spinal decompression. That being said, a woman who sleeps on her side may still find herself suffering from back pain during pregnancy.
Sleeping on the back in late pregnancy is highly advised against, due to the potential health risks that this could pose. If a woman in her late pregnancy were to lie on her back, the weight of her child(ren) would be put on her inferior vena cava (a major blood vessel in the body). The compression of this blood vessel could result in drastic drops in blood pressure and blood oxygen content, for both the mother and child and in more extreme cases can be fatal.
The Cozy Bump Pregnancy Pillow is a new way to help provide pregnancy back pain relief for women. The Cozy Bump is a special, OB/GYN approved, inflatable pregnancy mattress that allows for lying on stomach while pregnant, both safely and comfortably. The Cozy Bump Pregnancy Pillow features dual air chambers, an adjustable belly rim, a wide headrest, a breast cutout, and a slight decline throughout the length of the device to allow for spinal decompression. To use the device, the pregnant woman would essentially just lie in the device and experience instant relief from back pain.
The Cozy Bump can not only be used as a maternity mattress for sleeping on stomach while pregnant, but also as a pregnancy raft, and a massage table topper for prenatal massages. It’s also easy to store, making it so simple for travel!
The dual air chambers that the Cozy Bump features also function as a safety mechanism! In the rare instance that the Cozy Bump were to “pop” (for lack of a better word), the secondary interior air chamber would still help to keep the user lifted, and prevent the user from putting pressure on their stomach!
The Cozy Bump is available online at Amazon, Walmart, Target, Destination Maternity, and the official Cozy Bump Website, in the links listed above! The Cozy Bump is also available in-store at select Destination Maternity Stores!
