During pregnancy Snoozer pregnancy pillows can help with maintaining a properly aligned spine and after your pregnancy Snoozer body pillows continue that added support.

This is crucial. The central nervous system, which includes your brain, spinal cord and spinal nerves, is the body's communications center. Your central nervous system sends the message to your eyes to read these words, to your fingers to tie your shoes, it even tells you to breathe. Body pillows and pregnancy pillows help your spine protect the central nervous system, allowing it to function without interruption.
