If you’re in the last months of pregnancy, it might be difficult to find things you can comfortably enjoy. Even the littlest bit of walking can create discomfort. Finding the right footwear for pregnancy could really be the deciding factor between enjoying the “Collective Reaction” photo exhibit at the Station Museum of Contemporary Art this weekend and staying at home with your feet up.

Your feet will likely retain water during pregnancy, which can increase their size. Pick shoes that offer plenty of room to grow. You can even go up a half or full size if need be. You will need extra support, so an arch insert might be exactly what you need. Make sure you give your feet time to breathe by investing in a pair of supportive sandals. Many people don’t know that shoes with a rubber sole are more supportive than those with cloth insoles, so choose accordingly.

To help with swollen feet, or edema, here are some tips. If you sit at work all day, try to elevate your feet as much as possible. Even better, get up and walk around every so often to keep the blood from pooling in your feet. Make sure your footwear (both socks and shoes) are able to accommodate any swelling that may occur. This means that they are made out of expandable material and don’t have any tight bands on them. Lastly, drink plenty of water, get good exercise, and eat healthy foods.

If you have questions about taking care of your feet during pregnancy, call Dr. Marco Vargas and Dr. Joyce Lee at (888) 784-5335 or schedule an appointment online. Foot and Ankle Associates in Houston is dedicated to the health of your feet at any stage in your life, including while you are pregnant.
