Noticeably rounded tummy adds to its owner almost 10 pounds of weight. It affects lifestyle. It will become much more difficult to walk, doing everyday household chores is a lot of trouble. It seems that the only salvation from physical, psychological overload is a healthy, sound sleep. But in the position to fall asleep is the problem. To solve it, gynecologists together with orthopedists came up with such a wonderful device - a pillow for pregnant women.
During sleep, the body is usually on its side. This is the most comfortable position. Moreover, doctors recommend women to sleep on their side. The best blood supply of the child is guaranteed. The fact is that when a mother is lying on her back, the child inside her with her weight pinches important vessels. This situation affects the blood supply to the fetus, which leads to hypoxia, an insufficient supply of oxygen and nutrients. As for rest on the stomach, it is better for a girl to forget before giving birth.
The above materials for internal filling, can be used for any types of bedding for women in the position. It all depends on the manufacturer of the product.
No. 1 in the world Hollofiber filler is a high-quality non-woven material consisting of crimped hollow fibers that are joined by high temperatures. Holofiber is a micro spring , twisted in "balls" strongly intertwined. They provide dimensional stability , softness and elasticity without the use of adhesive joints. This property allows the fiber, unlike other materials: as a synthetic winterizer, batting, etc., to quickly regain its shape after crushing, to have a high resistance to abrasion, multiple folds and washes.
This material will be especially useful for allergy sufferers, since it completely eliminates the occurrence of any allergenic reactions. Pillows made hollofaybera different and improved environmental friendliness and hygienic - it hollofayber is not a breeding ground for all kinds of bacteria and fungi, as many natural materials, it will not start mites and other unwanted organisms.
Hollofiber , unlike traditional materials, such as natural down, comfort , sintepon, wool, silk or buckwheat, can not only instantly restore its shape after deformation, but also preserve it for a long time . Hologofiber- based pillows have a long service life, not retain odors, this material also does not sustain combustion. Unlike sintepukha , products made of “balls” do not clot longer, are easily whipped and retain their original shape for a long time. Provides free ventilation with high-quality heat retention.

Polystyrene balls - filler, which also meets the requirements of our customers.
Expanded polystyrene is universal, it is used in many branches of human activity, in the manufacture of toys, chairs and even disposable tableware. The main advantages of this material: environmental safety, immunity to moisture, various microorganisms, high corrosion resistance, low weight and environmental friendliness. The disadvantage is only dry cleaning and a small rustling sound in the pillow from the balls, which people are especially sensitive in silence under the weight of their body. In the washing machine you can only wash a removable pillow case from a pillow with polystyrene. Therefore, it is immediately recommended to buy several covers on pillows with polystyrene balls.

The size of the balls in our pillows is up to 2 mm in diameter. This is the best option to maintain the shape of the pillow.
Polystyrene balls in large cushions with normal loads - resistant to impact, semi-rigid material. Polystyrene balls with a body pressure on the surface of the pillow are evenly distributed in the cover, fit well to the body and gently support the body in the correct position.

- From the minuses of this filler, it is possible to note its slight rustling, which is visible only in complete silence and also the subtle smell of plastic and the impossibility of washing such a filler in a washing machine.
