The Best Pillow for Pregnancy: Developed with Health Professionals for Optimal Comfort

Getting a good amount of shuteye during pregnancy is one of the biggest challenges for expectant mothers. But we don’t want you to lose sleep over it! Here at Snüz, we’ve worked closely with health professionals to develop the best pillow for pregnancy – and our customers agree.

According to the NIH, around 19% of pregnant women experience sleep disturbances in their second trimester and 66% in the third. Your growing belly, changing hormones, and adapting body can all contribute to this, making for a less-than-ideal sleep experience.

But we’ve done our research, and we know that the right pillow can make all the difference in ensuring a comfortable and healthy snooze. Rather than tossing and turning all night, our pregnancy pillow provides essential support to your body, creating an oh-so-comfy cocoon to help you sleep better.

Let us introduce you to the SnüzCurve Pregnancy Support Pillow...

  • Designed to take pressure off all key stress points in the body
  • Unique shape to comfort and support your whole body, even in the latter stages of pregnancy
  • Features a machine-washable liner

What is the Snüz Curve?

The SnüzCurve is our unique maternity pillow that provides support and comfort during pregnancy. It's been designed with the help of health professionals to help alleviate common pregnancy-related discomforts such as back pain, pelvic pressure, and insomnia.

When it comes to materials, we at Snüz take no shortcuts. The SnüzCurve Pillow is encased in an ultra-soft, breathable jersey cotton cover. Not only does it feel super soft to the touch, protecting your skin during sleep, but it's also removable and washable for easy care.

The inner foam and beads provide the necessary support without compromising comfort. The foam adapts to the contours of your pregnant body, offering targeted support to alleviate pressure points for uninterrupted, quality sleep.

Of course, safety is paramount, and we've ensured that both the cotton outer cover and the polyurethane foam interior meet stringent EU safety standards.

Our commitment to versatility and style is reflected in our colour choices, offering the SnüzCurve in both quintessential white and a modern grey hue, allowing you to choose the perfect palette to complement your bedroom's theme.

The Experts Behind Our Pillow for Pregnancy

Unlike other pregnancy pillows, our SnüzCurve pregnancy pillow has been expertly designed alongside a team of true professionals, including a midwife, physio, and chiropractor.

With core values centred around improving sleep posture and promoting correct sleeping positions, it's the perfect companion for expectant mothers.

Our Chiropractors


Our pregnancy pillow has been designed with input from two paediatric chiropractors with over 50 years of combined experience.

Mike Marinus is a registered chiropractor in the UK (with the GGC) and in South Africa (with the AHPCSA). He's also heavily involved in the Royal College of Chiropractors’ Specialist Faculty for Pregnancy and Paediatrics, so he really knows his stuff when it comes to pregnancy health.

Dr Steve Williams DC, DICS, FICS, FRCC (paed), FBCA, has been a registered chiropractor for over 35 years. With his wealth of knowledge and experience, Dr Williams has held numerous seminars teaching the importance of paediatric chiropractors and the benefits for both mother and baby.

Our Physio


We also included a physio in our development process to ensure the pillow not only helps prevent discomfort during the night but also helps you recover from aches, pains, and soreness you feel during the day.

Melissa Clinton is a physio with over 25 years of experience with patients of all ages. She's headed up the Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy services at Guys and St Thomas’ NHS Trust, as well as being a qualified Sleep Practitioner.

With a focus on holistic and preventative approaches, her input has been invaluable in making the SnüzCurve the best of the best.

Our Health Visitor


Getting a comfortable night's sleep isn't just about when you're pregnant but after as well. We made sure to consult an experienced health visitor to ensure the SnüzCurve will bring you comfort and peaceful rest beyond your pregnancy.

Penny Lazell is a registered general nurse, midwife, and health visitor with over 25 years of experience in her field. In her various roles, Penny has seen all the ways pregnancy can be experienced, and her broad knowledge of expectant mums has helped make sure the SnüzCurve provides you with support where you need it most.

What Our Customers Think

It's not just us who think our versatile pregnancy pillow is much better than just putting a regular pillow between your knees at night!

Our customers rave about this body support pillow and how it has improved their sleep during pregnancy and postpartum, giving us multiple 5-star reviews…

"SnuzCurve has made all the difference to me! I found it unnatural and a struggle to sleep on my left side all night, and I was getting pelvic girdle pains - SnuzCurve helped me to tackle both of these issues! Very happy."

- Daria Malyarova


"I couldn’t sleep without this pillow now. I hadn’t come across one like this before, and it’s been my number 1 pregnancy essential. It makes sleeping while pregnant so much more comfortable. I love the washable cover and travel bag too. The best pregnancy pillow by far!!"

- Isla Utley


"I purchased this at 20 weeks pregnant after becoming uncomfortable sleeping on my side as I am usually a back sleeper. This pillow is worth every penny, and I genuinely believe I will still be using this post-baby. I have slept 10 times better every night since. It’s easy to wash too. Highly recommend"

- Lucy Eletha Hart


"I love my support pillow! The knee pad makes all the difference. It's also so handy that you can fold it in half and pop it back in the bag when not in use or to travel with it. The pillow I had in my previous pregnancy was enormous and took up so much room! Would be great if, in the future, different sizes for different heights could be released as the pillow is maybe just a tad short for me! Overall by far the best pregnancy pillow I’ve tried."

- Megan Balder
