Did you know that sleeping can effect your joint health? You can take the strain off of your back just by switching your sleeping position.
Side sleeping is the healthiest position with a pillow between your legs to help alignment. Many people find that a body pillow is more practical for sleeping like this.
Sleeping on your back can put strain on your lumbar region so placing a pillow under your knees can help relieve that. You can also place a small, rolled up towel under your lumbar spine for added support.

Pregnant women should avoid sleeping on their backs as this can cause backaches as well as other health concerns. A sleeping bean pillow is designed to help pregnant women sleep more comfortably on their side.
