Pregnancy Related Foot Issues

Your feet will change along with your growing baby

This is something that some expectant mothers will experience during pregnancy.   Often this will not cause issues beyond the need for wider fitting or more supportive/appropriate footwear, however, as the foot posture changes some patients may start to develop musculo-skeletal issues which may lead to an increased risk of ongoing pathologies.
