You don’t have to say goodbye to a good night’s sleep once you’re pregnant. We let gravity do the heavy lifting when it comes to providing natural and comfortable relief from heartburn and acid reflux. The base support of the Relief System features a gentle incline so you can sleep safely on your side without that constant burn and general discomfort.
Includes a Bump Nest™ Pregnancy Pillow, which serves to gently keep you on your side, the best position for acid reflux relief.
The base support and the Pregnancy Pillow work together to lift and support your head and torso in a comfortable elevated position.
An ingenious arm pocket, located in the center of the base support, gives you a pressure-free side sleeping experience.
A simple buttoned strap allows you to adjust the positioning of your head and neck.
We want your Relief System to wear well so you can use it for all your pregnancies. Removable pillow cases and the inner pillows can be washed in a standard front-loading washer to make them look and feel brand new.
Many women have never experienced the discomfort of acid reflux until they become pregnant. And although nothing sounds more delightful than getting off your feet, lying down can cause painful heartburn symptoms to act up.
The basic science behind heartburn is this: hormonal changes in pregnancy relax the circular valve between the esophagus and the stomach allowing acid to bubble up causing reflux. Factors such as, diet and personal physiology, can greatly affect the frequency and severity of acid reflux symptoms. While millions of people suffer with gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD), many pregnant women may not immediately recognize the acid reflux symptoms or know how to best treat them.
The Bump Nest™ Relief System was designed to help you sleep comfortably both on an incline and on your side (left or right) to naturally relieve reflux. During the night, the Relief System utilizes gravity to pull any refluxed contents down toward the stomach where they belong. Many sleep products currently available don’t ensure that you stay inclined and on your side long enough to control reflux. Plus, its unique structure promotes ergonomic arm placement and relieves nearly all pressure from your side, arm and shoulder, which all contribute to a truly comprehensive sleep solution.

I am not pregnant, but I am a side/stomach sleeper and I tried a number of expensive wedge pillow systems to relieve chronic acid reflux. They were all impossible to actually sleep on. The bump nest relief system was the only thing that was comfortable enough to allow me to sleep on my side, while keeping my body at an incline to relieve the reflux. Bonus is it will be equally useful and comfortable if/when I get pregnant!

I was diagnosed with hip dysplacia when I was 1. For years I've had hip and back pain. Usually I manage with a combination of painkillers and hot yoga however since I became pregnant I've been limited to Tylenol and even had to stop bikram yoga because of the excessive heat. At only 12 weeks the pain made sleep difficult. I got the bump nest because of the reviews and I liked that the product and cover are washable. I purchased the body nest relief system because I figured I'd need the incline when heartburn kicks in. I've only had my bump nest for a week and its significantly helped. It's not a cure all and I still have some pain but manipulating my body around the pillow allows me enough relief that I fall asleep. I have not washed the pillow yet so i cant comment on how the product holds after being in the washer & dryer. The product is pricer than other body pillows on the market but I consider it an investment and well worth the money.

I am not pregnant but I have ongoing back ailments. I have tried every body pillow on the market. I saw this ad for the bump nest and I thought I would try the product. I have literally been sleeping without pain ever since the first night of using this product. I am so happy!

I actually bought this for my fiance, HE loves it! He suffers from reflux and sleep apnea. So far so good - he LOVES this soft pillow system!!

This thing is phenomenal - I've never been a body pillow fan, but was desperate when I starting experiencing heart burn that would wake me up during my first trimester. The fabric and fill is incredibly soft - even softer than I expected. If I HAD to choose one thing I didn't like it would be that the body pillow part isn't the same length on both sides - I toss and turn a lot (and sleep on both sides) so the fact that its not the same shape on both sides throws me off a bit during the night; I can get over that though because I'm actually sleeping comfortably now!

Pillows are very important to me, even when I'm not pregnant. This was my second trimester present to myself. I am only 14 weeks right now and I love it. The fabric is so attractive, but what you can't tell online is how soft it is. I don't need the wedge yet, but I am sure I will as I get bigger. Love!

I used the system because of heartburn during pregnancy I don’t like to take strong medicines, so this was a great alternative. The thing I loved most was how comfortable it was for me to fall asleep on (especially because it’s hard to get comfy while pregnant . One thing I didn’t like was the separation from my husband. I was elevated, making it difficult to cuddle. I was able to fall asleep quickly with these pillows, which is something that I wasn’t able to achieve without them

This product has been a life savor for me! I have had acid reflux problems all of my life and being pregnant has only aggravated my condition. It makes it very difficult for me to sleep and keep food down. This sleep system has not only helped to relieve that, but also helped me with added comfort and support for my pregnant body. I plan to continue using this after I deliver and probably from here on out. I like that it has separate pieces that can be adjusted or used at your liking. I also love the soft fabric and the pillow filling is sturdy enough to support you, but soft enough to conform to your body. My favorite part is the long pillow that can be wedged and snuggled under your head and in front of you and behind you. What a great product! I highly recommend it for all pregnant women and for anyone who has heartburn or acid reflux problems!

This system was a LIFESAVER during my last pregnancy. With my first two pregnancies, I literally slept sitting up and with TUMS on my tongue so I could get any heartburn relief and get some sleep. It was miserable.
The first time I tried the Bump Nest with this last pregnancy I figured it would help me sleep on my side comfortably, but I had no idea how amazing it would feel to actually fall asleep without any reflux and stay asleep all night! I used the system pretty much every night of my pregnancy. I even traveled with it so I knew I would get a good night’s sleep. I love that there is a place to put your arm so that it doesn’t fall asleep in the middle of the night and you don’t slide down the wedge. I also love that your back and belly can feel really supported too.
I LOVE that my acid reflux symptoms disappeared within minutes of laying down on the system. Now after baby is here, I am still addicted to the body pillow. It is so comfortable and I feel so well rested sleeping with it. I cannot say enough about how much I love this thing!
