The husband and wife team Logan and Kathleen Zanki of North Carolina, Cozy Bump has become the best friend of expectant mothers everywhere as a maternity mattress that allows pregnant women to rest and relax on their belly. Not only providing comfort, the Cozy Bump relieves pressure in the lower back, while its patented design aids in spine decompression and helps eradicate the unwanted effects of “prone position,” which, before an approach like Cozy Bump, often stressed the lumbar vertebrae, uterine structure and posterior musculature – all resulting in low back pain.
“The assumption that so-called ‘prone position’ is not a safe sleeping position during pregnancy came from the fact that the public did not have access to a product like Cozy Bump until recently,” says Logan Zanki. “Our product is a carefully designed invention that allows pregnant women to assume the prone position without harming their fetus or their back. The problem with the prone position during pregnancy when not using a product like Cozy Bump would be due to: the effect of gravity on the weight of the growing abdomen stressing the lumbar, uterine and posterior regions.
“Efforts were required to design a specialized bed, such as our Cozy Bump, which would allow pregnant women to feel greater physical comfort without putting in danger the developing fetus.”
A unique structural opening in the Cozy Bump mattress fits the growing pregnant belly while a mom-to-be assumes the prone position, as a belly sling supports the abdominal structures to yield a safe and comfortable pregnancy. Keeping in mind the need for safety and comfort within such a position, the Cozy Bump was designed specifically for pregnant women, with such features as a swaddle placed over the aforementioned belly opening adding a myriad of benefits.
“Placing this swaddle over the opening and then placing the mother’s belly in it works just like a sling or hammock,” adds Kathleen Zanki. “The use of the belly sling prevents gravity from pulling on the belly and stressing the lumber vertebrae, uterine structures and posterior muscles – in other words, the arching posture of the body reduces lumbar and posterior stress.”
The Cozy Bump boasts such an arching posture through a raised part in the center and depressed elements at the ends, a position that does not impose lumbar or posterior muscle stress but which features a decline in the leg section and slight decline in the head section, with a large raised bump where the belly would normally go. The raised bump area in the middle combined with the decline in the head and legs causes the mom-to-be to arch over, releasing all tension so the posterior and lumbar muscles remain stress-free.
Further, a decline in the leg section yields sufficient spine decompression that can ease the pressure on the sciatic nerves, offering relief from pain. The convex shape of the Cozy Bump, meanwhile, reduces the intradiscal pressure and increase the diameter of the spinal canal foramineal area, resulting in a significant drop in pressure on the spinal nerves.
“The best thing about Cozy Bump is that it offers optimal fetal positioning,” concludes Logan. “Indeed, Cozy Bump is the best solution to the problem that pregnant women have been facing for years, brilliantly filling the market gap by allowing pregnant women to sleep in the prone position with adequate support to the growing abdomen – all in a manner that avoids pressure on the uterus, no disruption in the maternal and fetal blood flow and no discomfort to the expectant mom.”
