Health Tip: Soothe Swollen Feet During
(HealthDay News) -- The added pounds of pregnancy can take a
toll on your whole body, but your feet bear the brunt of that baby
The American Podiatric Medical Association suggests how to help
ease sore, swollen feet during pregnancy:
- Rest with your feet elevated as often as you can.
- Don't cross your legs or ankles.
- When sitting, stretch your feet and legs often.
- Wear comfortable shoes. Have your feet measured to make sure
you're wearing the right size, as pregnancy can make feet longer
