The Good Trade editors endorse products we’ve personally researched, tested, and genuinely love. Learn more about our methodology and business model here.
Counting sheep, or counting kicks to the bladder? Anyone who’s been pregnant knows the difficulty of getting that much-needed sleep during those crucial months. From the increased movement (it’s practically science that fetuses love midnight karate) to the diminishing real estate (oof!), it’s almost impossible to get comfy enough for a full eight hours by the third trimester.
While they aren’t a silver bullet, pregnancy pillows can offer significant support to a pregnant body. Since side-sleeping is an ideal position for optimal circulation, getting that extra support for your neck, hip alignment, and growing belly is essential. We’ve rounded up the best natural and sustainable pregnancy pillows to give you all the extra support you need without any of the toxic materials that might harm you or the baby. Get that sleep while you can, mama!
While you’re probably busy stocking up or creating a registry of essential items for your new baby, don’t forget about you: here are our favorite organic maternity clothes and nursing bras, and the best natural prenatal vitamins. To upgrade your sleep beyond pregnancy, check out our organic mattress guide.
Best For | An ergonomic body pillow for before, during, and after pregnancy
Natural Materials | GOLS-certified Melofoam™, GOTS-certified 100% organic cotton cover
Price | $199+
From one of our very favorite weighted blanket brands comes this squishy ergonomic body pillow—perfect for before, during, and after your pregnancy. Called “The Cuddler,” Bearaby’s newest innovation is made of GOLS-certified Melofoam™ (basically an all-natural rubber foam that is soft and conforming). What we love most is that, in addition to the white organic cotton cover, you can select covers in warm and cozy colors to match your bedroom or baby nursery. The only downside (which isn’t really a downside) is that it’s quite large at 82” x 7.5”—our editors wish they could carry it with them everywhere!
Best For | Hip alignment
Natural Materials | GOLS-certified organic Dunlop latex, organic cotton
Price | $248
Coyuchi’s organic latex body pillow is the perfect, huggable solution for side sleepers who need support between their knees. The large body pillow is designed to fit around you so that your spine and hips are secured in a snug, supported position all night long. The GOLS-certified latex filling is firm yet plush, and the organic cotton case is removable for easy cleaning, making this cozy body pillow a winner for pregnancy and beyond.
Best For | Restless sleepers
Natural Materials | Organic cotton & PLA plant-based filling
Price | $179
While not strictly a maternity pillow, Naturepedic‘s body pillow is a comfortable, safe, and nontoxic pillow for the side-sleeping months of pregnancy. With fill made from non-GMO sugarcane, this certified vegan pillow comes with an impressive pedigree of safety certifications, a 30-night trial, and 1 year warranty to book. Encased in a moisture-wicking organic cotton sateen, you’ll be cozy and cool all night long.
Best For | Snooze-to-nursing transitions
Natural Materials | USDA certified organic buckwheat hulls, GOTS certified cotton
Price | $165
Moonwomb knows that you need support beyond pregnancy, so they’ve made a pillow that will support you both before and after baby. This versatile pillow can fit snugly under your belly during pregnancy and transitions seamlessly into a nursing pillow once night feedings are part of your routine. The soft, organic pillow also has a small pocket to slip in a sachet of your favorite soothing chamomile or lavender scents to provide the ultimate calming vibe for a busy night.
5. Snuggle Me Organic
Best For | Belly and feeding support
Natural Materials | Organic cotton
Price | $74
For a minimal and highly versatile support option, we love the Snuggle Me Organic Feeding Support pillow. This compact crescent-shaped pillow is a low-key workhorse, easily wedged beneath your belly during sleep or in your lumbar while sitting. Available in a wide range of cute hues like gingerbread or gumdrop, these organic cotton pillows are soft, comfy, and safe to use as a feeding pillow too when the time comes!
