Pregnancy & Your Feet

Pregnant WomanPregnancy triggers many different changes in a woman’s body. Many women have common complaints throughout their pregnancy. Foot pain is one of these complaints that is often overlooked.

Due to the natural weight gain during pregnancy, a woman’s center of gravity is completely altered. This causes a new weight-bearing stance and added pressure to the knees and feet. Furthermore, the naturally released hormones that prepare the body for child birth also cause relaxation of the ligaments in the feet.
