La British Society of chiropodists (SCP) has issued some recommendations to pregnant women. It reminds us what to do and things to avoid while pregnant. Ballerinas, flip flops, Ugg boots and heels are especially to be avoided if one wants to keep feet healthy. 70% of pregnant women have foot problems.
CPC is based on the responses of a thousand pregnant women surveyed end May in which respondents indicated undergo pressure to prefer the style welfare. A third of them (32%) wore high heels, 53% ballet pumps, flip flops 66% and 30% of fur boots Ugg.
Unsurprisingly, 70% of them suffering from “foot problems like ankle swollen (37%), swollen feet (45%) and pain in the arch and heel (16%). ” For Lorraine Jones, pedicure and CPS member, “weight gain and hormonal changes in pregnancy have a major impact on the body. Muscles and ligaments soften and stretch because of an increase of relaxin, a hormone ovarian, which makes them more susceptible to foot tensions in the ankles and ligaments, daily. High heels alter posture, shortened calf and increase pressure on the back and knees muscles.”
“Shoes like ballet flats, flip-flops and Ugg boots are not recommended daily during pregnancy because they do not provide the necessary support to the feet, “says Lorraine Jones. the ideal heel 3cm CPC advises mothers to” wear comfortable shoes, with the maintenance.Ideally, with a flange, laces or Velcro. Choose a height of 3 cm heels as it shifts weight a little forward of the feet, which can help reduce the discomfort. “Choose shoes that hold the arch, provide good shock absorption, and have a firm heel,” says CPA who advises against “cross his legs or ankles while sitting.”
The CPS also recommends buying pregnancy shoes late in the afternoon when feet are at their maximum size, and ensure that it remains 1 cm between the longest toe and the tip of the shoe. the recommendations of the SCP, published June 15, are based on data collected from an online survey of a thousand pregnant women or new mothers (less than two years), conducted by one poll, and field work, between 23 and 30 May.
