"A lot of women don't know they can get treatment whilst pregnant, or that their postural and exercise habits can help prepare their body for labour and prevent pain."
As a chiropractor, specialising in working with pregnant patients, Sharon Sackey grew frustrated with the tools available to herself and fellow practitioners. Knowing that she had the skills to help women enjoy a pain-free pregnancy, she set about designing a prone pregnancy pillow for use by professional therapists.
Sharon's goal in creating Belloost was to help more women enjoy their pregnancy and guide them on how to prepare for labour through mindfulness, exercise and hands-on care. Frustrated by the fact that over 50% of women experience severe back and pelvis pain during pregnancy, often leading to induction which increases the risk of intervention dramatically, she continues to promote the fact that manual therapy can be conducted safely throughout pregnancy.
Sharon explains: "There is so much that can be done to reduce the risk of intervention and prevent traumatic births, but a lot of women don't even know they can get treatment whilst pregnant, or that their postural and exercise habits can help prepare their body for labour and prevent pain."
Fast forward four years and The Belloost Professional Pillow is now award-winning and trusted by over 700 pregnancy experts around the world. Thousands of women have benefitted from treatment using the pillow, and Sharon continues develop products to enhance pregnancy, including the newly launched Belloost Home.
"Having access to the Belloost Pro Pillow at home felt like a personal cheat code. I knew then that Belloost belonged in the home, not just on a therapist's treatment table."
During this time Sharon took her own journey into motherhood, making good use of her pregnancy to continue developing the Belloost. She reflects: "Having access to the Belloost Pro Pillow at home felt like a personal cheat code. I knew then that Belloost belonged in the home, not just on a therapist's treatment table."
Having cemented its place as the professional's choice of pregnancy pillow, The Belloost Home goes one step further to ensuring that every pregnancy can be pain-free and comfortable, up to labour and beyond. Designed with the same expert eye and attention to detail as its big sister, and with home use firmly in mind, it's the perfect addition to the maternity kit for every mother-to-be.
