This product was previously sold as Ultimate Pillow Butterfly Pregnancy Pillow
Supports back and stomach
Small and compact
Made from breathable Japara cotton
This is ok, but expected a bit more support
Tried this pillow based on recommendations online. I was looking for something that would reduce the likelihood of sleeping on my back, however, I found that I often will still wake up on my back, despite using the pillow.

I finally can sleep better!!!
The pillow is great, however i wish it was a little more plump. Great size, doesn't get in the way of hubby. No longer 'accidently' sleeping on my stomach or back which is great. And I can finally get some decent sleep.

It’s okay. I expected more for the price
It’s okay but it’s just very firm and kind of high/thick so I struggle to find a comfortable position.
The service was excellent though and delivery super quick! It’s just not that comfy

Perhaps just not the right thing for me
The butterfly pillow was beautifully packaged and arrived quickly (and with the sweetest gift inside- thank you!) but unfortunately I’m not 100% sure it’s the right thing for me yet.
I have quite bad SI joint pain and was hoping this would bring me some relief but it doesn’t seem to help much as yet. I’m 21 weeks pregnant and hoping as my belly grows it will give me the support I need. I’m persisting with it as I think the design is good and quality is great. Just not the immediate relief I was hoping for!

My fiancé bought me this pillow for Christmas after I’d asked him to purchase for me. I was disappointed by the size of the pillow though, the photos defiantly make it look much bigger and with a growing bump I’m not sure how long I’ll be able to use it

Not loving it yet.
I got this pillow as I was struggling with sleep & I am sleeping a lot better but I just can’t seem to find a the perfect place to place the pillow as of yet! I really wanted to love it & hopefully the bigger my bump gets the more comfy it will get. 24weeks atm)

Too soft : Since edited!
I bought this early into my pregnancy and was great at the beginning especially for m back. Now at a little over 5 months I feel it doesn’t give enough support for my belly and I have to put another pillow underneath it.
Edit: I was contacted by the company and was offered fantastic customer service. They kindly sent me out the newer edition which is much more supportive and comfortable. I do feel this will last further into my pregnancy.

So soft & good quality
Super soft pillow, aids in helping when I am on my side with my bump, I can imagine it will become even more useful soon when I am abit bigger. Great quality pillow!

Good quality pregnancy pillow
The pillow is good quality and feels nice it’s just the middle section that you lay in is not wide enough for me to fit my body into properly or comfortably.
Purchased in August 2020 at Butterfly Maternity for $77.60.
Unfortunately I don’t find the pillow comfortable. I purchased to use as seen as in the pictures to help support me sleeping on my side, however I find that this props me up too much and curves my spine. The only way I have found I can get use from it when in bed is between my legs, but I am left wanting something to support my belly and back.

Good for smaller framed women
I have a full body pillow and now my butterfly pillow, I prefer using the full body pillow. As a larger woman the butterfly pillow is just too small for me.

Questions & Answers
I'm interested in trying this but has anyone found they also need knee support? If so what did you use? Any recommendations?
Hi Ell, I just put a normal pillow between my legs if needed. I’m 25 weeks and find I can still get a good nights sleep without my butterfly pillow but i suspect I will need it in third trimester .
I agree with Emma, definitely recommend some sort of knee pillow. A normal pillow will definitely do the job. I used the butterfly pillow to support my belly and that helped my hips a bit too. Nothing will make you 100% comfy to sleep while pregnant lol
Hi Ell, thanks for reaching out! We find many mums love using a pillow between the knees in addition to the butterfly supporting your side sleeping. Alternatively, if you wish for just bump support some mums-to-be turn the butterfly sideways to support both the knees and bump at the same time!
I bought the pillow recently and have tried it for over a week now. However I'm still finding it difficult to get a good position. I toss and turn a lot during my sleep and the pillow hasn't prevented me from doing so, so far. I still wake up with back aches and it's just been uncomfortable. I really like the quality and materials and I think it supports my belly well so I'm trying to persevere with it for my back. I'm 16 weeks pregnant and petite/short, and my main areas of soreness are my mid back. I've reached out to customer service but haven't gotten a reply yet. Was wondering if you could help me out?
I have found the past few weeks I’m better without the pillow. When I do need it, I place it behind my back only as support and this helps. Move the pillow to suit your bodies need. You don’t always have to support back and belly as such. Eventually I know I’ll need it for my belly again though. (16w3d)
Thanks for sharing your experience Anna :) How do you position it behind your back in a way that supports it?

Hi, I just wanted to know does this pillow give support to plus size women? I’m 19weeks and I’m plus size, I will be gaining more weight as time goes so just wanted to make sure that I will have that support.
I am plus size and yes! It's definitely big enough!
