I got this as a gift. I just don't get how it works. It has way too much space in the middle and offers no support. Additionally it takes up an enormous amount of bed space, so unless you want your husband sleeping on the couch it is not a great choice. I need to have a pillow between my knees for lower back comfort so if I were to use this pillow as well that would make 4 pillows total....ridiculous.
I have a back injury and fibromyalgia. I use this pregnancy pillow when my pain level is over the top. The pillow holds my tummy and back in place and really helps relieve my pain making it easier to sleep.

I've been using the maternity pillow for about two weeks now. I'm only about half way through my pregnancy and not that big yet but it's a big time help getting me to sleep on my side which I was told is better for the baby. There's no slip cover for it which would of been nice, but for the price I really cannot complain, it does what it needs to do.

The pillow works pretty good, it has brought me some relief. Just wish there was a better way to make the connection between the two pillows; the velcro when connected is a folded piece of material under your side. Also wish there was a machine washable cover for this pillow or that a standard pillow cover would cover each side. It kind of keeps me on my side, but keep ending up on my back, which isn't the best at 22 weeeks.
I was looking for an inexpensive set of pillows to wedge between to relieve back pain in my third trimester of pregnancy. The separate pillows would continually separate at night. The pillows are cheap but work well enough under the belly, but for facing the back, the pillow is not stiff or sturdy enough. I wedge another smaller pillow in there between my back and the back pillow and it works fine. The only other flaw is that the velcro between the pillows isn't effective at all. It easily comes undone over the course of the night, especially if you're turning over. But it's inexpensive and I've managed to make it work.
This maternity pillow is very functional although I don't really understand how it works. Bought it for my wife who is going through our first pregnancy and was complaining about severe back pains. Once I got this product, and she started using it, along with standard pillows to support her legs, she woke up every morning without the pain. Although she would acquire the pain again during the day, sleeping on the pillow every night would relieve her of that pain. Only flip side: I have a queen bed, and this leaves very little space for me to sleep. Still, overall a good product!
The photo makes this pillow look higher quality than it is. The velcro is useless and super irritating. I have yet to find a case to fit the pillow and figure I will have to make one on my own. As for comfort, I have mixed feelings. Sometimes it just gets irritating and I throw it on the floor, but other times, it does help my belly when i cant get comfortable.
The pillow is nice, but I haven't been able to find a cover to fit on it because of the way the two sections are connected. You really need a cover too, because the velcro on the strap can be really irritating. The shape of the pillow is helpful, though.
Once again, Overstock has given me access to a great product and deal! I bought the maternity pillow for my pregnant daughter, and she loves it. I thought the fabric could have been nicer. It looks like thin cotton and seemed to have a thicker cover in the picture. But, according to my daughter it functions very well. After I purchaased it, I found other maternity pillows that appeared to look nicer, but at a greater cost. Basically, we got what we were looking for. I definitely recommend thia product as a good buy.Cathy L..,Blue Point, N.Y.
It's an odd little item... not particularly firm,and as others have said, I have no idea what the velcro strips do in the center. But, I was desperate to try something to help me get comfortable in bed, and the body pillow that I had from my first pregnancy - the long, "c" shaped one that is very popular amongst pregnant women - wasn't really feeling comfortable, so I gave this new one a try. So glad I did. How I sleep: I put a supportive pillow under my shoulders, neck and head to raise my head and alleviate heartburn... this maternity pillow around my body... and my feet elevated on firm pillows to help with swelling. Quite the set up, but it works! As I sleep on one side or the other, I feel supported back and front by the maternity pillow just a bit, which feels much better than trying to sleep without it. I suppose it is a personal thing, and it might not work for everyone, but it has been working for me. Note: it seems to be more helpful as pregnancy progresses. At 5 or 6 months was not quite as helpful as it seems to be now-- the bigger I get the more I appreciate it. I'd tell any pregnant woman that it's worth a shot.
I have to say that i have bought my fair share of pillows during this pregnancy and this pillow has been my favorite one. Thing is, i bought it 2 months ago and now i have to buy another one because the foam is not of quality (so it wore out quickly) and the seam busted. The firmness of course is the reason Im buying a 2nd one.
This maternity pillow feels like a pillow from a very cheap motel. I do not understand the purpose of the velcro. I LOVE Overstock but unfortunately, this purchase was not worth it- Maybe as I get further along I will give it another chance and learn to like it, but as of now it is under the bed in our guest room!
