Pregnancy is a beautiful journey, filled with wonder and anticipation. But let’s be honest, it can also come with its fair share of discomforts.

One particularly unpleasant companion for many expecting mothers is heartburn. That burning sensation in your chest can make even the simplest tasks, like getting a good night’s sleep, feel impossible.

If you’re struggling with pregnancy reflux, you’re definitely not alone. Millions of mamas-to-be experience this discomfort, and it can make those nine months feel like an eternity. But there is hope! Here’s where an adjustable bed base can become your knight in shining armour.

Imagine this: you’re curled up in bed, a book in hand, ready to unwind after a long day. But then it hits – that burning feeling that creeps up your throat, reminding you that gravity isn’t exactly your friend tonight. Traditional flat mattresses can exacerbate heartburn by allowing stomach acid to creep up your oesophagus. An adjustable base allows you to elevate your upper body, creating a gentle incline. This simple change in position helps keep stomach contents where they belong, reducing that burning feeling and allowing you to drift off to sleep peacefully.

But the benefits of an adjustable bed base go beyond just heartburn relief. Pregnancy brings a beautiful transformation to your body, but it can also lead to aches and pains that make finding a comfortable sleeping position feel like solving a Rubik’s cube blindfolded. An adjustable base allows you to customise your sleep position for optimal comfort. Raise your head to ease heartburn, elevate your legs to improve circulation and reduce swelling, or find the perfect position to cradle your growing belly. It’s like having a bed that moulds to your ever-changing needs, providing support exactly where you need it most.

The best part? An adjustable base isn’t just a pregnancy saviour; it’s an investment in your long-term comfort. As your baby grows and your needs change, the adjustability allows you to find positions that ease back pain, promote better sleep throughout your pregnancy journey, and even provide a comfy spot for nursing after your little one arrives. It’s like a bed that grows with you, adapting to each stage of motherhood.

Let’s not forget the ripple effect of a good night’s sleep. When you’re well-rested, you have more energy to navigate the joys (and challenges) of pregnancy. You’ll feel more patient, more prepared to tackle the day, and maybe even have the energy to chase after a rogue sock or two. Reduced heartburn and improved sleep can lead to a more positive and peaceful pregnancy experience, allowing you to truly enjoy this special time.

So, mamas-to-be, remember this: you deserve comfort!
If you’re struggling with pregnancy reflux or simply want to find a more comfortable way to sleep during this special time, consider exploring the world of adjustable bed bases.
It might just be the missing piece to a restful night’s sleep and a more enjoyable pregnancy journey.

This is by far the best mattress I have ever slept on. It was recommended to me by my sister as sleeping on this bed really helped with her back pain. And I can say that it has helped me immensely with my back issues. It is very comfortable and supportive.

Highly recommend this mattress

The last bed we had for 12 years – a queen size A.H. Beard was great so we upgraded to a king size and are very happy with the Grand Harmony plush – great that they are made in Australia.
