The belly bean is perfect. Can't sleep without it now!
After shopping around, I finally came across the belly bean...and now I can't sleep without it. I have lots of issues with my hip, lower back and sciatica and it has helped so much. Plus it's an amazing support for my growing bump. So thankful I got one!!!

Honestly love my belly bean! Sleeping is so easy pregnant with the belly bean!
I am 20 weeks pregnant and sleeping was so uncomfortable with out the belly bean! Now just looking at the belly bean makes me happy! I can’t go to be with out it! I have taken the belly bean traveling and I just it every night! I have washed it once and the belly bean is so easy to wash and the quality of the material is really great. I would love to recommend this product to any pregnant woman! 10/10

Best pregnancy pillow ever
I used my pillow since early pregnancy as I was carrying twins, it made a whole difference in my sleeping. Loved the front and back support. I used it after giving birth too.
A pregnancy must
Highly recommend this product. This was perfect for keeping my heavy belly supported and comfortable while moving from side to side in the night. Have used for 2 pregnancies and could not sleep without it.
LOVE LOVE LOVE!
I am usually a back and tummy sleeper. I was getting a very sore back very early on (about 18 weeks) and struggled staying on my side while sleeping. After using the bellybean for one night my sore back disappeared and I was able to sleep without worrying about rolling onto my back. I absolutely love it! I wish I had bought it much earlier even before the bump really appeared. Worth ever dollar!

Great product, highly recommend it.
I usually sleep on my back or tummy and was really struggling with sleeping on my side from about 18 weeks pregnant. I'd often wake up in a lot of pain and had restless sleeps. I didn't like any of the other maternity pillows as they are so big and take up so much space. I found belly bean while desperately googling pillow options and have been using it for 2 weeks now and it has already made a huge difference. It stops me from rolling on my back by accident and I find it really supports me and I have slept the whole night without waking up in ...pain and discomfort which is amazing. It's also really easy to roll from side to side and is very soft and high quality and I love that it's made in Australia. Thank you for such a great product, it has helped me so much. My only point of feedback that other's mentioned is not having such large writing on it. If not for that, I think I'd consider just chucking it on the couch after pregnancy to use as a cushion as I really like the colour and softness!

I am generally a back sleeper and found it hard to stay on my side when I was pregnant. The Belly Bean Maternity Pillow was amazing with helping me stay on my side, in comfort. As the months went by and I got bigger, the pillow tucked perfectly under my belly and behind my back, allowing me to be more comfortable and to sleep better. It was a lifesaver!!
Once I had my baby, I used the Belly Bean Maternity pillow for assistance with feeding and resting my little one as he fell asleep in my arms.

I was recommended the belly bean by a friend who used it in both of her pregnancies. Ive been using mine for about 2 months and I love it!
I’m usually a belly sleeper and it has definitely stopped me rolling onto both my belly and my back!
It supports my bump beautifully and is so soft and comfortable I often forget it is there.
After a solid 6 weeks of using it I stayed at my husbands parents house for the weekend and forgot to pack my belly bean - big mistake, that was the worst sleep I had in months!
It’s much smaller than the bulky pregnancy pillows so takes us barely any room in the bed.
Will recommend the belly bean to all my future pregnant friends :)

This pillow has been a game changer for me. I started out with one of those big body pillows & it was just so bulky I could never get comfortable. The bellybean is nice and small & cradles my pregnant body front and back perfectly! I love how it suppprts my back aswell. Cannot fault it.
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!

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

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.

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.

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

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.
