Body pillow for post op

Hello ladies! I am a stomach sleeper every night so I am looking into the pregnancy โ€œUโ€ pillow to allow me to sleep post op. Anyone else do that?

  • I was told to sleep elevated on my back for a week. I used a wedge pillow, pillows under my arms, one under my knees and a neck pillow. Could have not gotten a wedge and been fine. Neck pillow is a must. It took me another week to slowly sleep on my side and was told at my 6 week appointment I could stomach sleep. I can for a small amount of time but usually got back to my side.

  • I'm a stomach sleeper as well and I found it difficult to sleep on my side after my BA.  I'm 6 wpo and I'm just starting to sleep on my sides, but only for a few minutes as I'm finding it still uncomfortable.

  • Did you order and use the U shaped pillow? Was it helpful?
