Here the model is supporting her hip joint by putting a pillow between her knees. This raises her top leg and will allow the muscles around her hip joint to relax.

She has also placed a pillow support in the space between the bed and her waist. This will take strain off her low back.

She has positioned her head and neck comfortably on her pillow.
