Relax during pregnancy with heat pads

You've just found out you're pregnant. Hooray! Start your pregnancy well prepared with Sit & Heat's heated pillows. Discovering that you are pregnant is one of the most exciting and joyous moments in a woman's life. The mix of emotions, from excitement to wonder, can be overwhelming. While pregnancy is a wonderful experience, it can also be challenging. Many women experience physical discomfort, such as back pain, which can sometimes make daily life quite difficult. Fortunately, Sit & Heat has a very nice solution for this: heat pads!

Back pain during pregnancy

Back pain during pregnancy is a common complaint. The growing baby and changes in the body can cause tension and discomfort in the back. This back pain can range from mild to severe and affect the expectant mother's daily life. Finding effective ways to relieve back pain during pregnancy is essential. Fortunately, heat pads can provide relief. They help relax muscles, improve circulation and reduce pain, allowing pregnant women to find relief from (back) pain.

The gentle and even heat they give off helps the muscles relax when the pillow is placed in the back. Due to the improved blood flow, thanks to the heat, nutrients and oxygen are transported to the painful area more efficiently, promoting recovery. It is also possible to place the pillow under your heavy abdomen, allowing your belly to rest on this and relieve tension. Using heated pillows is a safe and effective method of reducing back pain during pregnancy.

Safety and precautions

Our cushions work with infrared technology. This technology has been extensively tested and is completely safe for you and your baby. Sometimes it is thought that infrared is not good for the baby. If you look this up online, you will also find that infrared saunas, for example, are not recommended. The reason is that in an infrared sauna or a jacuzzi, your body as a whole heats up very quickly and thus your internal temperature rises. With the use of a heating pad, only a specific part of your body is heated and your body temperature will not rise nearly fast enough to be harmful to your unborn child.

In addition, Sit & Heat's heat pillows also feature a control panel, allowing you to turn off the heat. So your body can slowly warm up, but also slowly cool down again while you can continue to enjoy the cushions' lovely soft fabric all the while. Warm and nice and soft!

Two types of pillows for you

At Sit & Heat, we have two types of heat pads especially for you. Our folding cushions come in Velour and Teddy fabric. Both wonderfully soft in their own way. We also have cushions for your own chairs or benches. That way you can choose what you like best!

The technology behind the Sit & Heat heat pads

At Sit & Heat, we are passionate about creating solutions that make outdoor living more enjoyable, even on the coldest days. Our heat pads are designed to ensure that your seat and legs always stay wonderfully warm, without having to worry about finding a socket or freezing in the cold.

But how do our heat pads actually work? The secret lies in the technology built into each cushion. Each cushion contains a set of electric heating elements built into the cushion itself. These elements are powered by an internal battery that is charged before the cushion is used. Once the cushion is switched on, it the battery used to drive the heating elements and produce heat.

Cushions for the British bum at Wagtail

Sit & Heat's heat pads are popping up in more and more places. Now even on a brand new roof terrace in the heart of London! For this, we were allowed to collaborate with big names from the design world. We even travelled to the British outback to deliver the project pico bello.

In May 2022, Wagtail opened its doors: a high-end restaurant and cocktail bar in London's Financial District. The rooftop terrace offers 360° views over the city, with a spectacular view of London Bridge. The interior was designed by architect and designer Russell Sage. A big name in the design world, he designs five-star hotels, exclusive restaurants and luxury bars, for example. Fortunately, he thinks it is important for guests to be warm. He enlisted our help for durable patio heating!

Russell Sage's wishes

"What designers want is for an interior to be made exactly as they draw it in," explains Sit & Heat founder Jorg Rijkschroeff. "That's how they come to us: we deliver tailor-made work, that's our expertise. Russell Sage approached us through our agent Anthony Gerard, the face of Sit & Heat in the UK." Anthony already has many warm contacts in the UK, as he also works as an agent for hospitality parasols from Symo Parasols.

"We launched Sit & Heat in the UK in spring 2021," Anthony explains. "Pretty soon after, Russell Sage expressed interest in the heat pads for the restaurant we now know as Wagtail - but at the time was still called '68 King William Street'." There followed many complicated specifications, unusual requirements and the request to work with different furniture makers: a nice challenge.

On to England

"Russell Sage had already selected three UK parties, which allowed us to deliver the furniture and heating as one," Jorg explains. "The Contract Chair supplied chairs and bar stools. They sent samples to us in Nijmegen so we could customise heating. 3 Interiors carpented terrace benches, for which we made cushions. Finally, we worked with Coco Wolf: a fairly exclusive furniture brand that supplies fully upholstered sofas and chairs."

Just before the completion date, Coco Wolf found itself running out of time. Jorg continues: "Then we flew to England a day early, to help assemble all the parts! On site, we connected the seat heater electronics. That was in an old nineteenth-century factory, the kind you really only know from TV. It was very cool that we ended up there just like that!" Meanwhile, the final result can be admired: for an atmospheric impression, take a look at Wagtail's Instagram page.

The UK is not unknown territory for Sit & Heat. For example, the Nijmegen-based heat cushions are also at the chic champagne bar in Harrods and at the Berkeley Hotel's rooftop bar. "The big architects of Europe are in London. They also sign for Milan, for Amsterdam, you name it," says commercial director Jeroen Diks. That's how the ball got rolling. "Besides Russell Sage, we were already working with architects like Brady Williams." As far as Sit & Heat is concerned, many more designers and special locations are going to follow!
