GOLDEN, Colo., Jan. 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The Boppy Company, a world leader in award-winning products for mom and baby and the maker of the original nursing pillow – the Boppy® Feeding and Infant Support Pillow – is expanding its Boppy® Prenatal Comfort Collection to include the new Boppy® Pregnancy Back Rest. The Boppy Prenatal Comfort Collection is comprised of five products ranging in size and usage. Each serves a different need and is designed to give customized support and a comfortable sleep solution for every stage of pregnancy. Joining the family of well-loved products is the Boppy® Pregnancy Back Rest, which is now available at key retailers.
Research suggests that pregnancy-related sleep issues can impact labor and delivery. According to research from the University of California at San Francisco, first-time mothers who slept six hours or less in the ninth month of pregnancy were more likely to experience prolonged labor. According to the Sleep in America poll run by the National Sleep Foundation (NSF) in 2007, 97% of pregnant women reportedly wake during the night in their third trimester and 92% sleep restlessly. By using a combination of the versatile products in the Prenatal Comfort Collection during daytime and sleep time, moms-to-be can have a customized comfort and sleep solution that works best for them.
