Former 90210 actress Tori Spelling spent her Fourth of July by the poolside in a wheel chair resting her bandaged and injured right foot. According to the article, instead of resting her “baby bump” by the pool, the pregnant star was nursing an injury to her foot, the cause of which is unknown.

Keeping your feet healthy during your pregnancy is essential, and you should seek out the care of a podiatrist like Dr. Michael Stein of Foot Doctor of the East Bay to help you along the way. Dr. Stein can provide recommendations for you in order to keep your feet healthy during these important stages of your pregnancy.

What foot problems can arise during pregnancy?

One problem that can occur is over-pronation, which occurs when the arch of the foot flattens and tends to roll inward.  This can cause pain and discomfort in your heels while you’re walking or even just standing up, trying to support your baby.  

Another problem is edema, or swelling in the extremities. This often affects the feet during pregnancy, but tends to occur in the later stages. 

How can I keep my feet healthy during pregnancy?

· Wearing orthotics can provide extra support for the feet and help distribute weight evenly
· Minimize the amount of time spent walking barefoot
· Wear shoes with good arch support
· Wear shoes that allow for good circulation to the feet
· Elevate feet if you experience swelling
· Massage your feet
· Get regular, light exercise, such as walking, to promote blood circulation to the feet
