Something as simple as a beanbag can support your body weight and help with those pregnancy aches and pains.

Did you know that as a woman’s pregnancy progresses, their centre of gravity changes? This can mean that the female suffers issues with pain in their lower back and pelvis, brought on by the extra weight of carrying a child around.
Beanbags can provide support, which will help alleviate these symptoms.

And don’t forget, disposable sheets are available so that this birthing mat fully complies with all medical standards.
