This is one of the better videos for positioning a woman for pregnancy massage or even to just give her a nice side lying position for a rest or rub.

If you ever to to want to get a pregnancy massage you would expect your therapist to position you in this manner. Lots of pillows are needed or as you will see further down the page you can find pregnancy pillows which are great anytime you want to rest.

As I always state, the Pregnancy Pain Relief book is not massage. I will actually do more for you than massage, acupuncture, or chiropractics.

When you purchase the Pregnancy Pain Relief book it has you positioned in this manner for best results. Pillows are a pregnant woman’s best friend. There is basically no oil used in the Pregnancy Pain Relief techniques except to finish off with a little rub once the treatments are done.

This video is 8.5 minutes long.

Another way to support is with a pregnancy pillow. These are some that I came across and thought you might want to get a hold of and why I like them.

By clicking on the image you will be taken to for that product. I have found it hard to beat Amazons prices so feel free to click on any of the ones I recommend to you.

Further down the page you will be able to see multiple images of each pillow offered on this page.

After reading many reviews on these large pregnancy pillows I am seeing a small trend.AllNighter2Web200

If you are shorter let’s say 5 foot 3 inches or 5 foot 4 inches or smaller you may find these larger pillows overwhelming  in size and weight.

Or, if you tend to like smaller flatter pillows you may find you could get a kink in your neck.

Another thing to think about is the size of your bed. If you have a queen size bed, there may not be enough room for you, the pillow, and your partner.

All in all, a lot of women love these pillows large maternity pillows. There are lots of reviews for you to read, when when you click on the image.

The picture to the right is the largest of the pillows offered the Leachco All Nighter.


PregnancyWedgeWeb200This wedge will help with some of the stretch you may get to the round ligament as well as the stomach  muscles that attach to the ribs.

A little bit of support  goes a long way when you are pregnant.

I could also see this pillow used for breast feeding.



Here are some more pictures of each pillow .




This is the most popular pillow of the bunch.


It’s called the Leachco Snoogle.

LeachcoSnoogle2Web200It is probably the most comfortable in size and function.

It had the most reviews with the high rating of 4 stars.


Looks good for massage and for just lying around.LeachcoSnoogle1WEb200


I think this would be a great purchase for you even if you aren’t pregnant.



The next one is the next size up is the Leachco Back N Belly Pillow.  This pillow is a little larger and designed to fully support you front and back.


The Leachco Back ‘N Belly pillow will allow you to turn over without having to flip the whole pillow from one side of your body to the other.


You can see it would be easier to turn over and grab hold of the other side.

Looks pretty good doesn’t it.

They advertise with a picture of a mother nursing with this pillow.



Personally the pillow is so large, I would think you would need help handling your baby and the pillow at the same time.

If you have bought this pillow before let us know what your thoughts are.

That said, it is a highly rated pillow and has plenty of reviews recommending it.

As you can tell, this is not good for a massage pillow to big and it would get in the way.


This last pillow is the Leachco All Nighter. This is a huge pillow.AllNighter2Web200

AllNighterPillowOnlyWeb200 As you can see it can be rapped around you in a number of configurations.

With this one also you would be able to turn over without having to reorganize to much.

Just remember when picking out a pillow like one of these you want to make sure AllNighter3Web200you are comfortable with large pillows under your neck.

I don’t want you getting a kink in your neck when you already are uncomfortable.

One last point. In reading a number of the reviews there was one other thing that came up
