How to Choose the Right Pregnancy Pillow?

Some pillows make an awkward noise when you move around on them. Pillows filled with styrofoam should be avoided if you are a light sleeper as they will make a noise.

  1. The degree of softness of the pillow:

Soft pillows should be avoided as they may not provide proper support. Firm pillows are better when it comes to giving support to the head and the body.
