Health Tip: Soothe Swollen Feet During Pregnancy

Massage and elevate your tootsies

(HealthDay News) -- The added pounds of pregnancy can take a toll on your whole body, but your feet bear the brunt of that baby weight.

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 and wider.
