It is traditionally done within the first weeks and can be done for various types of delivery.  It also includes essential oils with acupressure on the hands, feet and scalp. This is a gentle session to help with emotional and physical recovery.

ITEM SIXTEEN:
Belly Baby Breast Pillow – $60 Value
Donated by Dr. Kevin Ross

 Starting Bid: $24

There are no contraindications for belly-down sleeping while pregnant. Doctors agree that it is perfectly safe to sleep on your stomach, or belly-down while pregnant, for as long as you are comfortable. That used to be until 16 – 20 weeks but now with the BBB Pillow, you can continue to sleep on your belly for much longer – most likely for the entire 9 months!

Is it safe to sleep belly-down while pregnant?

In reality the only reason for not sleeping on your belly is comfort.  That is it… There is no anatomical reason to not be able to (like the compression of blood vessels of laying on your back)… very little is written other than “you won’t be able to comfortably sleep on your stomach”.  There is not a single research article about the risks of prone or belly down sleeping.  It truly is a comfort issue and providing another way to rest while pregnant.
