Pregnancy and the Feet

What happens to the feet during pregnancy?

The changes that occur to an expecting mum’s body are an amazing process - and the feet are not excluded.

The pressure on the feet increases dramatically due to healthy weight gain and postural changes associated with pregnancy. This sometimes coincides with swelling of the feet and ankles which may limit footwear choices. This is not a good combination when you need more support from your shoes than ever before!

What can you do to help?

At South Burnett Podiatry, we’ll do everything we can to help you feel more comfortable on your feet and make this exciting journey as easy on your feet as possible. This includes talking about the best, supportive shoes, using orthotics to help cushion the feet and maintain the foot’s natural alignment.

Our goal is to keep you walking as comfortable as possible, reduce heavy loads, and assist your balance and general mobility as your pregnancy progresses.
