Stay Healthy All Night with the Pregnancy Coach® System
Wearable sensor easily clips to clothing via a magnet and gently vibrates, getting you off your back without fully waking you up.
App tracks your sleep patterns and provides actionable feedback to improve your sleep.
Back (supine) Sleep and Stillbirth
Pregnant women on average sleep 1.5 hours on their backs but often are unaware because they are asleep. Back sleep has been shown by multiple studies to be linked to significantly increased stillbirth. Science Behind Harmful Sleep
13% of women go to bed in the supine sleep position
Over 50% end up spending at least 1.5hrs supine each night
Over 80% spend some time supine
The only clinically-proven solution
Pillows that are not attached to your back, including whole body pillows are completely ineffective at preventing supine sleep as evidenced by decades of back snorers having to resort to tennis balls, backpacks and the like. Even with whole-body pillows behind your back, eventually your body will shift and slide down onto your back.

All the back-attached solutions are designed for people who can (and get used to) turn from side to side through their stomach. But this is not an option for pregnant women, who typically change their position 20-30 times a night but can only turn through their back. You'd be forced to wake up more often because your body is telling you to turn and you can’t.

Effective Alerts Guarantee
Wear the Pregnancy Coach Sensor your entire pregnancy and if we don't register any Effective Alerts, you can return it for a full refund.
To qualify for a refund, your Pregnancy Coach app must register at least 20 nights of 3+ hours of wear each with Vibrational Alerts enabled and it must register zero effective alerts during your pregnancy. An effective alert is a vibrational alert issued by the sensor after which you change your sleep position away from Flat Back.
Common Questions and Concerns
Does it emit harmful radiation?
No. The Pregnancy Coach sensor has passed all electrical safety and radiation emission tests required by the FCC. Our sensor only uses the very lowest power Bluetooth communication (BLE) which equates to less that 1/1000 (a tenth of 1%) the level of electromagnetic radiation generated by today's Android and Apple phones.
Will it disrupt my sleep?
The Pregnancy Coach System is designed to improve your sleep. It gives you peace of mind so you don't stress out about rolling onto your back in the middle of the night. The vibrational alerts are also highly customizable and induce a position change but do not fully wake you from sleep. And, the sensor itself is so small and lightweight, you won't even realize you are wearing it.
Does it really work?
The Pregnancy Coach System was developed with the input of many of the leading OBs in the US and with support from the Mayo Clinic. Every aspect of the product has been honed so that it is effective in reducing supine sleep but also results in a great user experience. In addition, in a clinical trial conducted at Mayo Clinic, the Pregnancy Coach System was able to reduce back sleep in pregnant women by over 80%. Additional studies are currently enrolling patients and results will be published soon.

I was lucky enough to use the Pregnancy Coach during the entire duration of my pregnancy. Using the sensor helped me stay on my side and gave me peace of mind that I am in control of my sleep position. Plus, its simple design didn't interfere with my sound sleep and I always woke up well rested!

I really enjoyed viewing my sleep analysis on the app each morning. I would wake up in the morning to check it and was really surprised at how often I rolled onto my back when I was fast asleep. The wearable sensor was very effective at encouraging me to change my body position without waking me up. I will definitely recommend this product to other moms.

Being pregnant is hard for so many reasons - but one is the constant stream of worries that swirl around in your head. Even sleeping isn't restful if you're constantly worried about rolling onto your back and blocking blood flow to your baby! The Pregnancy Coach is such a great way to give much-needed peace of mind to new moms-to-be in those amazing, yet terrifying, months of pregnancy.
