How does pregnancy affect your feet?
Your body undergoes significant changes when pregnant, and many women find their feet are included! With added hormones and weight gain, your feet may increase in size, swell, and ache. The body releases a hormone called relaxin that softens and lengthens ligaments. This allows the feet to spread out and “grow” in size—often a whole shoe size, or even two. The additional weight changes your center of balance, which can strain and cause pain in your heels, arches, balls of the feet, and ankles. Your body also retains more water during later pregnancy, which can settle in your legs and feet and cause swelling.
All of this is normal, but the changes can be uncomfortable. The doctors of Dallas Podiatry Works will work with you to help support your feet and relieve the extra pressure. They can also detect some pregnancy complications that may show in your feet first.
