Much easier to turn over
It has helped with my hip/ back pain & it is much easier to turn over in the night using this rather than the other pregnancy pillow I have but I still need to put a pillow between my knees in addition to this. It does help me to stay on my side, I do occasionally wake up half on my side/ my back but much less than when using the other pillow. I bought mine second hand for $30 & wouldn't want to spend more than that on my bellybean.
Purchased in March 2020 for $30.00.
How did I live without my Bellybean before?! It made night time super comfy during pregnancy, and now my baby is 3 months old, and I still sleep with my Bellybean every single night!

Unhappy and uncomfortable
I found it to be uncomfortable asked to return it and was told to try it out for a few more nights. I have yet to hear back from the company and am disappointed with the customer service.

Could have been better
I use this pillow religiously since 13 weeks and I am used to sleeping with it. However, the gap between is quite large and I don't feel supported all the times. My main concern is that it doesn't obstruct me from rolling to my back, which is a negative for the price. It does provide support for my belly though.
Best pregnancy pillow been using since 12 weeks and now 20 weeks. No need for bulky pillows and it stays in place so when I toss and turn during the night I'm supported on both sides. Well made and definitely recommend

Doesn’t provide the support it states
Hmm I’m not 100% on this pillow. I think the gap in between is a little too big as it doesn’t support my back like it says it does. Convenient when turning around in the middle of the night and not having to stuff a pillow under my bump but i still require a heap of pillows to support between my legs and upper body. Unfortunately I’m still uncomfortable while sleeping, not the best pillow for support. Could also do with a little more padding. I would recommend unfortunately, for suckered into Facebook ads.

A game changer in pregnancy pillows.
This pregnancy pillow is simply perfect.
Not only is it beautifully made, it has allowed me to have the best night sleep I’ve had in a long time!
The pillow supports your belly, back and hips brilliantly and does not take up a lot of room in bed unlike the U shaped pillows.
Although the BellyBean may seem slightly expensive, I can promise you’ll soon forget about the cost when you’re sleeping so comfortably.

Nice but average maternity pillow
I've had my belly bean for about a month now, I do like it however it doesn't provide enough support for my back, its perfect on my bump but I still wake up with a really sore lower back, I think it just might be too wide for me (I have had to put extra stuffing in the middle of it to try and bulk it out a bit more). I am finding I need to place an extra pillow underneath it behind my back for extra support. Love using it for sitting up in bed etc & its a nice size plus the cover is really soft. Its an average maternity pillow for me but it seems like it works wonderful for others as per the reviews on here, I don't regret buying it though as it is still useful however I do feel that the price is a bit steep.

Very good support to my back, no back pain at all
My back started to feel a bit sore at around 14 weeks. I didn't like the idea of very bulky maternity pillows since they take up so much space. I am so happy that I picked belly bean. It's very compact and yet gives very good support to my back and tummy. I am 30 weeks now and still enjoy very good sleep. Very happy with my purchase.

So happy I bought it!!!
I was looking forward to purchasing the Bellybean but became sceptical after reading a few negative reviews. After purchasing it I certainly am so relieved that I did! It took a couple of days of getting used to but wow is it helpful and I’m still only 20 weeks. I can only imagine how much more I’d love it as my bump gets bigger!

Great product but overpriced
I really love my bellybean, it's not bulky and certainly helps with the comfort. I still use a pillow between my legs but this is still less bulky than traditional pillows. Happy with the quality. The only thing that is disappointing is the price. I feel $90 is excessive considering its basically an hourglass shaped pillowcase with 2 small round pillows at either end. I thought maybe the pillows might be made out of something special but they are just plain pillows. Could certainly made at home for a fraction of the cost.
All in all, happy with the product but sad I paid that much.

With my first pregnancy i used a range of pillows and cushions to help me sleep but even so, from 33 weeks I was constantly tossing and turning due to pain in my left hip and right ribs.
When the pain started up again around the same pregnancy I couldn’t deal with the thought of running a business, keeping a 3 year old alive and happy and running a home on no sleep.
I read good things about this pillow and eagerly awaited its arrival. The first could of nights it took a bit of getting used to but after that it has been a game changer. I stil...l use a cushion between my knees but the belly wan supports my bump and stops me laying flat on my back. I’ve had 6 weeks of sleep I didn’t get with my first pregnancy and it’s all down to this pillow!! I really feel I need to talk to some of the negative reviews on this site. Clearly people don’t understand the time, effort and money that goes into developing, prototyping and launching a product and business. My friend is a seamstress and even if these only took 2 hours to make she’d be charging $100 for her time alone. No they aren’t $20 bit they’re also not made in a Kmart sweatshop by children. And no the owners aren’t making a massive profit on them, their selling their unique idea which has helped 100’s of women in the hope they make just enough to make a living. So, amazing product and a reasonable price.

I purchased the belly bean pillow in early 2017 in my first pregnancy and loved it, I couldn’t go without it. Fantastic quality, Australian made and product satisfaction certainly justifies the price. I continued to use this pillow whilst breastfeeding as it was personally the perfect shape to sit along my lap while feeding my newborn. Happily pulled it out of the cupboard recently for my second pregnancy and still highly recommend it. However I am sleeping differently, first pregnancy I found fantastic support with the pillow running verticall...y along my body- one end of the pillow between knees and the other resting against my stomach, this time around running horizontally- one end supporting my tummy and that other end supporting me from rolling onto my back. So versatile. Thanks belly bean team

What an amazing product you have created.
Not only is it ethically produced and packaged it is also helpful to get comfortable sleeping. I can’t thank you enough. The pillow is also fantastic for breastfeeding. Love your design and commitment. Brilliant product.

Questions & Answers
Henk, I think you’re doing more harm than good for your small business with these passive aggressive responses! I was considering purchasing but your tone is a little off putting.
I’d suggest you consider not being so dismissive of experiences that are not in line with your own - some women will experience things differently and that’s okay. All the best.
Agree, won't be purchasing this pillow after seeing a snippet of the type of customer support Bellybean provide. Better off buying a knock off from ebay for less than half the price.
Is it suitable for plus size women Also?
It's pretty small. I'm larger than average and I didn't really think it gave me much support at all.
