holo – the lilo with a hole
The holo is an inflatable airbed with a hole in the middle, for use on land or water. Developed for use in pregnancy to enable women to lie on their tummies it was invented by a mum after finding it impossible to relax on a holiday in Spain while pregnant herself. Before now, it has always been assumed that once your belly gets too big, front lying is just one of those things that you can’t do, and just had to be accepted as part of pregnancy.
Well, now this is not the case and more and more professionals are realising that lying on your tummy is not just an essential part of getting your baby into optimal position for birth, but quite often a way of relieving aches and pains in the pelvis and allowing total relaxation, which in the build up to birth is often hard to achieve.
The holo has revolutionised tummy lying in pregnancy. Midwives, osteopaths, yoga teachers, physiotherapists, obstetricians, all who have seen the holo approve of its use and are amazed nothing like this has been developed before.
The holo can be used at any stage of pregnancy from the moment it becomes impossible to lie on your tummy, right up until the birth. One size fits all! You must ensure that your hips sit on the raised rim to avoid your back arching through the hole. This raised rim has been added specifically with back support in mind; without it the holo just wouldn’t work.
- on land – either use with both head and body sections inflated or deflate the head section and use a pillow instead for even more comfort
- on water – always use with both sections inflated for safety.
