The experts are divided regarding the use of heeled shoes in pregnancy. All, however, agree that the use of high heels modifies your posture and changes your centre of gravity, putting more pressure on the lumbar region of the spine, already quite vulnerable in pregnancy.
Those who advocate the use of shoes remember the ligaments that guarantee the stability of the column are looser during pregnancy, which makes them more prone to injuries and overloads. That’s why pregnant ladies are at more risk of twisting the foot and high heels also contributes to the risk, says NATUREGNOSIS.COM.
Another problem of high heels, according to some doctors, is that when you press the lumbar region, can contribute to pain in the spine, which can be very intense.
In addition, the increase in weight, the change of body shape and changing the Centre of gravity make you walk in a different way and with less stability. Thus, the use of high heels can cause imbalance. And a fall during pregnancy can harm you and your baby to the.
Platform heel shoes are more comfortable to ride, but have the same risk of falling: they make it much easier to turn the foot, especially when the floor is irregular (as sidewalks with holes or cobbled floor).
Pay attention also to see if the sole of the shoe is not very slippery.
Even doctors don’t see problems in the use of the jump, recommend that you take the decision based on your comfort. You can, for example, take a pair of sneakers or shoes in the bag and put them on after work (or at the end of the party). Or move to the models without jumping from the 25 weeks of gestation. Or even give up the jump to do the tasks of everyday life and only use it on special occasions.
Consider that another effect of pregnancy is to get your feet grow. In addition to running the risk of getting blisters on your feet, you may end up too your favorite shoe laceando, that may end up getting too wide for you to use after pregnancy.
There are women who feel uncomfortable to wear shoes without heels or flats. This type of shoe can also encourage pressure on the heel and in the column. If this is your case, look for a low-heeled shoes and wide base, which give enough support.
