Behind the Scenes: Developing the Custom Fit Total Body Pillow

Our Custom Fit Total Body Pillow was designed with Nancy Harrison, a physical therapist, for better sleep.

 

Because a good night’s sleep is important for mom and baby. Ask any mom.

 

We asked Nancy to tell us a little about how the Custom Fit Total Body Pillow helps alignment for restful sleep. 

 

“We helped develop the Custom Fit Total Body Pillow to support the curves of the body while lying down.  Women’s bodies have significant differences in the width of the pelvis, waist, shoulders, neck and even into the legs down to the ankles.  When lying on the side on a flat bed, even one that does have some give to it, the curves don’t match the flatness.   Filling in these differences helps keep the spine aligned;  usually better alignment leads to more comfort.  As moms-to-be change during pregnancy, the pillow can help support the body to stay as comfortable as possible and get the rest they need.  We, as physical therapists, have taught our clients (pregnant or not) these concepts, using many pillows in bed to create this comfort and alignment.  However, to get all the support you need before this pillow was designed, we would use 2-3 pillows and a towel or two.  Keeping track of all that in bed was tough.  Once the Custom Fit Total Body Pillow was developed, positioning became much more simple!  We recommend the pillow to many of our clients, pregnant or not!”
