About the Butterfly Maternity Pillow

Care Instructions & Helpful Information

How do I take care of my Butterfly Pillow?

  • To maintain the fullness and shape of your Butterfly Maternity Pillow we recommend regular plumping. 
  • Butterfly Maternity Pillows are best kept by hand washing.
  • Just remove the cotton cover and wash your Butterfly Maternity Pillow by hand.
  • Drip dry to rejuvenate and fluff to return your Butterfly Maternity Pillow to its supportive shape.

How do I use my Butterfly Pillow?

For optimum support we recommend that you lie (on your preferred side) towards the centre of your Butterfly Pillow. It should feel like the pillow moulds to your shape and gives support both bump and back - this can be the magic trick you’re looking for.

The small size the Butterfly Maternity Pillow makes it easy to turn and reposition in bed for a comfier sleep, while maintaining alignment in your hips and spine to reduce pressure and discomfort in your back. 

Check out this video to see how the Butterfly Pillow can be used. 

Why side-sleeping?

Side-sleeping is best, which is why we created the Butterfly Maternity Pillow to support your back, cradle your bump and provide comfort and stability in the side-sleeping position.

Physiotherapists recommend sleeping in a posture that maintains the natural curve in your lower back. Sleeping on your side with your knees bent can help maintain alignment in your spine.

Where are the pillows made?

Every Butterfly Maternity Pillow is made and manufactured in Melbourne, Australia. 

What are the pillows made of?

The Butterfly Maternity Pillow is covered with Japara Cotton; a quality cotton soaked with a natural beeswax coating to ensure durability and provide a silky look and feel.

The Butterfly Maternity Pillow is filled with Comfortfil®, thousands of tiny siliconised polyester fibre balls moving independently. Our pillows don’t clump or develop flat spots - simply plump the pillow to disperse the Comfortfil® balls and create the optimum support for your body, at all stages of pregnancy.
