I'm not to the uncomfortable stage in this pregnancy yet, but I remember quite well how impossible sleeping became towards the end last time. You aren't allowed to lie on your back or your belly, so are limited to your two sides, which ache terribly. Not to mention rolling over from one side to the other is quite an effort!! So, the Holo offers pregnant women the ability to relax and even sleep on their bellies again - hoorah!
They say necessity is the mother of invention, and I say mothers often make the best inventions. True to that, the idea for the Holo came to Emma Benson five years ago when she as 28 weeks pregnant with her first child. She began working on prototypes and test marketing three years later, after the arrival of her second child, and after several improvements the Holo hit the market in 2009.
My belly is still quite small, but knowing how big and uncomfortable I'm going to get carrying these twins, I couldn't wait to test the Holo out!
Getting on and off of it also takes some getting used to, but that pretty much goes for any movement whatsoever during pregnancy, am I right!?? Anyway, all in all a really awesome product!! Besides sleeping and relaxing, it's also great for floating around if you have a pool or lake house, or if you have an amazing partner who gives you massages!!
