Pregnancy can be a special and magical time in a woman’s life. However, it’s also a time of many changes in the body and significant challenges, such as back pain, swollen feet and ankles, and changes in posture.
Fortunately, insoles for pregnancy and maternity shoes can address and alleviate many sources of pain and discomfort. Choosing the right arch support insoles for pregnancy, in particular, can keep you comfortable and healthy when expecting a baby.
Understanding Pregnancy Pain and Discomfort
Why is it so common to feel back pain and discomfort during pregnancy? Your body is working overtime and undergoing many changes during pregnancy, which can put pressure on your feet and cause discomfort in your ankles, legs, hips, and back. Additionally, hormonal changes in your body may cause fluid retention, leading to foot and ankle swelling.
