Pregnancy & Feet
The changes that occur to an expecting mum’s body is an amazing process and the feet are not excluded.
The load on the feet increases dramatically due to normal weight gain and postural changes associated with pregnancy. This sometimes coincides with swelling of the feet and ankles which may limit footwear choices. Not a good combination when you need more support from your shoes than ever before.
Your Podiatrist will be able to offer advice on supportive shoes, that can be adjusted with swelling, and if necessary provide you with arch supports or orthotics to maintain the foot’s natural alignment.
