How to wear shoes for pregnant moms
For women, the happiest memory in life is the process of gestating a small life, from the restlessness after the first pregnancy, to the pain and pain of the second trimester, until the pride and happiness after the advent of the little angel.The waiting process seemed happy and long.
In this process, swelling of the legs and feet is a very common phenomenon during pregnancy, in addition to the precautions required by the doctor, as well as the needs for attention in life and diet.
How to choose the right shoes, foot care in daily life needs to pay attention to knowledge.
Tong Tongma asked: “What kind of shoes do you wear after pregnancy?
I have very few flat heels. It’s been more than 2 months now. When can I not wear high heels?
It seems that shoes that are not followed are very uncomfortable to wear.
Expert response: The feet of pregnant women are a relatively complicated condition with many physiological changes. The amount of foot circumference change (swelling) in a day is between 10-25mm, far exceeding the tolerable of human feet.range.
The change of the pregnant woman’s foot shape is only limited to the change of the girth (fatness), and the change in foot length is changed with the presence or absence of weight (ie, sitting, standing and walking). The average of sitting and standingThe amount of change is about 4-7mm, and the average change of standing and walking is about 3-6mm.
Therefore, during pregnancy, especially during the last three months of pregnancy, the demand for pregnant women’s shoes is very important.
First, pay attention to the need to wear shoes during pregnancy Most women around 3 months of pregnancy, toes or soles will show varying degrees of edema, especially near the delivery, the edema of the feet and legs may be quite prominent.
As the fetus continues to grow during pregnancy, the weight of the pregnant woman also gradually increases, and the entire sole will bear a greater load, and it is more necessary to master the body balance when walking.
Because the center of gravity has also changed, wearing a pair of shoes that are not fit can make pregnant women feel tired, which affects the development of the fetus in the abdomen.
During pregnancy, especially during the third trimester of pregnancy, the demand for special shoes for pregnant women becomes very important.
Second, the misunderstanding of wearing shoes during pregnancy Some expectant mothers during pregnancy believe that the flatter heel is better, in fact, flat shoes are not the best.
Even for normal people, because the weight of 4/5 of the body is put on the heel after wearing flat shoes, it is easy to cause heel damage, and the poor shock absorption function of flat shoes will affect the spine and brain health.It is more appropriate to choose shoes with a heel of 2 cm.
In addition, pregnant women in the middle and late stages should not wear high heels. During this period, the body of pregnant women is already fat, especially the hips are protruding, the position of the chest and waist is forward, and the body naturally leans back.At this time, the center of gravity of the pregnant woman’s body will lean forward and lose balance, causing troubles such as wrestling and flashing the waist.
It may also cause a shortened anteroposterior diameter of the abdominal cavity, increase the inclination of the pelvis, and artificially induce dystocia in the head position.
At the same time, the pressure on the abdomen will rise, which will cause greater pressure on the blood vessels, which will restrict the entire blood circulation, which will easily cause pregnancy edema.
In summer, more people wear slope-type foam-soled sandals. This kind of sandals has good elasticity and is more suitable for the shape of the feet. However, its shortcomings are also obvious, that is, the soles are slippery and easy to fall.
Therefore, pregnant women should pay attention to choosing non-slip soles when choosing shoes to prevent them from slipping on rainy days or encountering water stains.
People like to wear slippers for daily living, because it has the advantages of convenience, softness and elasticity.
The sweat glands of pregnant women have strong secretions, and there is a lot of sweat on the feet, which is easy to form sweaty feet. Wearing rubber or plastic slippers may cause dermatitis. Pregnant women with allergies are particularly obvious, so thin cloth slippers are suitable.
When dermatitis just starts, the back of the foot is red, and it may feel a little itchy, so many people mistake it for “tinea pedis” or “eczema”.
Having said so many misunderstandings for everyone, how do mothers choose their proper shoes?
Third, nine points for pregnant mommy to choose shoes: (1) the sole should be non-slip and use shock-absorbing material; (2) pregnant women should pay attention to the heel height, the ideal heel height is: 15-30mm,Although flat-heeled shoes are acceptable, with the effects of “weight gain” and “step back”, pregnant women tend to have plantar fasciitis after delivery, etc. such as heel discomfort.
The heel height of the shoe is about one inch higher than the forefoot. Flat shoes should be avoided; (3) You can purchase professional and fully-contact insoles to help reduce pressure on your feet; (4) choose round toes and have a better fatness宽，鞋身应用弹性质料，鞋面材质较软的鞋子 (5)鞋后跟的宽度要比后跟帮宽些，以减少扭伤的风险; (6)容易穿着及可作调节的鞋子为佳(例如Velcro, avoid lace-up shoes, slip-on shoes).
(7) The size of the footwear depends on the length of the foot. You must pay attention to the extension of the sitting, standing and walking postures, which is about 10mm longer than the feet.
(8) The shoe type is open-top style, that is, lace-up or velcro is better. Secondly, you can choose a shoe style with elastic band or adjustable width.
(9) During the tenth month of pregnancy, you can wear different shoes in the early (0-6 months) and late (6-10 months), that is, shoes for pregnant women and shoes for pregnant women.Choose a securing device with a heel cup.
The above is a general place to pay attention to when purchasing pregnant women’s shoes. If abnormal symptoms at the end of pregnancy have occurred, you must cooperate with the doctor’s diagnosis and treatment with other special footwear devices.
