5 Ways To Combat Pregnancy Foot Problems
– by Nathalia Gomes

Though, this may be a joyous and sentimental period as you nurture your bundle of joy. Ladies are bound to face immense discomfort due to the changes in their feet caused by ongoing weight gain.Two of the most common causes are out to over-pronation and swelling.

  1. Ensure Supportive Footwear

Purchase maternity insoles, which is a more convenient options as it can easily be slipped into shoes. This can help to prevent feet from flattening out while up keeping support.

Look for Massaging Insoles that are filled with glycerin which moves as you walk, thereby giving your feet a massage with every step. Plus they act as shock absorbers which help to relieve pain in your feet, knees, hips and back. You will experience the fantastic but gentle massaging on nerve endings in the bottom of your feet. The pure glycerin is distributed so every area will be supported, thus helping relieve pressure, reducing pain and discomfort.

Slip-ons are another alternative. Look for a pair that has proper arch support.

  1.    Restrict Wearing ‘Fashionable Shoes’

Ladies, although you may be dying to wear your favourite  pair of heels refrain from doing so. As your centre of gravity drastically changes during pregnancy, heels would pose a threat since weight is unevenly distributed. Instead opt for wedges or platforms to give your height a boost.

  1.    Keep Feet Elevated

Whether it is just for a few minutes, try to elevate feet above the level of your heart as much as possible. This helps to prevent edema.

  1.    Be Cautious Of Food Choices

Cut down on table salt, processed food and caffeine. These are types of food that retain fluids in your body leading to the swelling of your feet.

To ease swelling, consume more potassium rich food into your diet which help to balance your body chemically while flushing out excess water. This include:

  • Sweet Potato
  • Raisins                                                             
  • Bananas
  • Spinach
  • Oranges

Lastly, the most important step is to keep your body hydrated. Drink at least 10 cups of water a day to prevent water retention
