We used buchwheat bio mattresses.These mattresses are a bit harder than the usual ones. So as I got pregnant I thought I would need " softer " mattress due to my increasing weight and discomfort, so we got usual ones from Ikea. And then I read in one book that the metal inside the mattresses is not very healthy for pregnant women !
I sleep well on an ordinary foam mattress with no springs, but I have added a thin, woollen mattress on top of it, just under the sheets. It makes the bed more breathable, and wool doesn´t preserve moisture or odors.
As a pillow I have one that is filled with millet husk only. An absolute favorite!
