The Original Theraline Maternity and Nursing Pillow


I am a lucky mummy at the moment because I seem to have found the most comfortable pillow for pregnancy. Now, if you've never had a baby, then you probably wont understand why I'm so excited over a pillow but, it's not just a pillow, it's a sleep saver. 

During pregnancy, as your bump grows, sleep can be a bit hit and miss. With an ever expanding waistline and bump, getting comfy is hard and the fact that you have a baby constantly moving around inside you (and trust me, they prefer being awake at night). So when you come across a product that helps with this, it feels amazing. 

The Theraline Maternity and Nursing Pillow isn't just an ordinary pillow. It measures approximately 190cm x 38cm and is filled with around 42 litres of odourless polystyrene micro beads which are light as a feather. This filling then moves to the shape of your body and it always remains firmly in place without giving way to give you support and comfort. It can even be washed at up to 60°C too. 

The Theraline Maternity & Nursing Pillow keeps your legs and tummy supported and even your head and shoulders are too. It is more beneficial during the last months of pregnancy when you may become more restless with a bigger bump and constant movements and using it, you’ll experience less strain on your back and legs.


During breastfeeding, using the Theraline Maternity and Nursing Pillow gives less strain on neck and shoulders as it holds your baby up into place meaning no slouching forward for mum alleviating any stress on the back too giving a more relaxed breastfeeding experience. 

My Theraline Maternity and Nursing Pillow came with a purple jersey cotton cover which is extra soft and has been pre-shrunk to stop it from disappearing in the dryer and coming out mini sized. This gives it an immense amount of durability which is great as all that pulling and pushing around during the night and the fact that it can be used whilst breastfeeding and holding you baby too means that durability is key. 

I now don't have to use all my pillows to try and get comfortable as the Theraline pregnancy and baby feeding pillow is so versatile that I can change position very easily and as it is so long, it gives full support to my whole body giving a comfortable, good night's sleep.


It can also be used whether you’re pregnant or not. Even my husband uses it sometimes as he had spinal surgery 2 months ago (and may need further surgery soon) and he finds it super comfortable. Some nights I have to fight it off of him.

For me, I am now satisfied that as the months go by, and my bump gets bigger, I will be supported through sleep by the Theraline Maternity and Nursing Pillow and even once my bump has gone and breastfeeding starts, it will help to keep comfortable. 

You can find more information about the maternity and nursing pillow on the Theraline website and it can also be purchased from John Lewis too.

  3. Physical comfort is so important. Yet in pregnancy there are many changes to adapt to, this pillow looks like a great asset at such a time of rapid physical changes etc.

  6. I've been looking at these for a while. Are they nice to use without being pregnant? They look great for sitting up in bed watching tv or reading.
