Footwear for future mother: how to choose?

will cease to suit future mummy her former clothes Sooner or later. The benefit now not a problem to buy special clothes and seamless linen. The same history and with footwear: to the swelled legs it becomes uncomfortable in tight “court shoes“.

And on very tall heels - hairpins with a stomach in general it is difficult to resist. And if to take into account in addition probability of spasms, pains in the field of rise, knees and a waist which often accompany pregnancy then it becomes clear that it is necessary to approach the choice of footwear seriously.

First of all, it is worth refusing shoes on a high and spike unstable heel. Since the beginning of pregnancy the female organism actively produces hormone progesterone which promotes among other to a softening and increase of elasticity of connecting fabrics: it is one of stages of preparation of an organism of the woman for childbirth. When carrying footwear on a high heel of stop is in physiologically wrong situation, and the pliability of sheaves and sinews during pregnancy can turn into permanent deformation of joints of foot, knee and coxofemoral joints.

In footwear on heels at the woman the backbone bend changes, at the same time the basin as if “bends“ forward. It means that the child is displaced from pelvic “cradle“, convenient for it, closer to a forward belly wall. Excessive pressure upon it is fraught with excessive stretching of direct muscles and skin of a stomach. Subsequently it will be difficult for you to return a form, and extensions will be more noticeable.

It is worth remembering that with growth of the child parameters of a body change and the center of gravity is displaced, it causes an incoordination of the pregnant woman. On high and spike heels it will be much more difficult for it to keep balance, than in footwear on a flat sole. And falling, even rather “successful“ from the point of view of traumatology, can seriously do much harm to the kid and the most pregnant.

It is unreasonable and dangerous to wear shoes on an unstable heel in snow weather or ice even for not pregnant women.

If footwear on a heel - indispensable attribute of your daily clothes (for example, it is demanded by the rules of appearance accepted at you at work), then try to secure as much as possible yourself and the child.

For prevention of deformation of foot it is necessary to use special insoles. It is possible to pick up them in shoe shop and what are necessary to you, the doctor will prompt.

Avoid narrow footwear - it creates additional loading for easily giving in deformation of foot and excessively presses the swelled leg. Before change of tight shoes on more convenient use special “dividing“ overlays for a thumb or gel small pillows. They can be found in shoe shops, but it is better to address to orthopedic salon. But it is only a temporary way out. Such footwear not for you.

Let`s legs have a rest. At any opportunity “get out“ of footwear on a heel and put on another, more suitable. It is especially important to change the shoes if your legs began to hurt, you felt their sleep or spasms.

Footwear on absolutely flat sole (sneakers, flats, etc.) - yours too not the best friend. Especially if you have a flat-footedness or tendency to puffiness of legs. When walking areas of ankles can ache quite strongly, and by the evening to ache the back accepting excess loading when walking. However nevertheless such footwear is much more preferable than “hairpin“.

An optimal variant - not narrow footwear on a wide steady heel up to 3-4 cm high, on a corrugated sole, made of natural materials, with the closed heel, without laces which is easy for putting on and removing, without bending.

If materials artificial, then the leg does not “breathe“, will begin to sweat, slide in footwear that is fraught with callosities, natoptysha, and sometimes even falling. If materials also low-quality, then moist skin of foot absorbs harmful connections which processed or painted footwear. If the footwear with an open heel, then a leg in it is too mobile and can slip out. If footwear with laces, then when your stomach becomes more, you feel how it is inconvenient to tie them and to untie! The same concerns boots with long tops. And if a sole smooth, it is possible to slip and fall easily.

It is possible to choose footwear on a low platform sole. It is not so harmful as footwear high-heeled though it is not really steady too.

Try on footwear, having put on a thick sock, and it is desirable in the evening. Then the bought footwear will not reap the swelled leg subsequently. Whenever possible pick up orthopedic inserts - it will reduce probability of pain in legs or a back.

Do not take couple which sits on a leg densely and furthermore it presses, - even with a huge discount. In several weeks it can be be already small to you.

Several times during the day remove footwear and do exercises - rotations by feet inside and outside, on 20 times in each party. It will improve blood circulation of your legs.

In the evening warm trays for legs with sea salt and the light weakening massage of feet with menthol or lavender oil are recommended. Lift during rest of a leg upward (on a pillow or a back of a sofa) to improve blood outflow.

Good luck also you go easily even if become day by day heavier.
