Abstract

The invention relates to an improved mattress, particularly maternity mattresses for supporting the abdomen, or for supporting the abdomen and breasts, of a pregnant woman when lying in a prone position. A maternity mattress includes a support section for supporting the abdomen of a pregnant woman lying in a prone position. The support section may be configurable to a deformable state and a substantially non-deformable state. In use, the support section is able to be configured to the deformable state to allow it to deform to the shape of the abdomen of a pregnant woman, and is subsequently able to be configured to the substantially non-deformable state in which the support section is able to provide support to the said abdomen.
