Pregnancy, such a Happy Event but unfortunately they do come with a few of their challenges. And yes some women are lucky they seem to have none. But for all the regular moms-to-be out their, we know that swollen feet are one of them.

Here are a few hacks to help relieve the swelling a bit:

  1. Foot Rubs

Try and get your partner or best friend to give you a foot massage. After all, you deserve some pampering while your body is going through so many changes than before.

  1. Keep your feet elevated

Try and keep your feet up whenever you are sitting. If you at work get a foot rest or something that you rest your feet on that is comfortable. Having your feet up will help to relieve the pressure on your feet and will force you to rest. The same applies when you are at home.

  1. Avoid tight shoes or clothing around your feet

Tight shoes and clothing items such a stocking restrict the circulation in your feet, and right now you need all the circulation you can get. I know it might take some adjustment if you love dressing a certain way. But think about it, it’s only for a short while. Before you know it, you will be back in your favourite pair of tight heels

  1. Exercise

Staying active during your pregnancy has many benefits, and preventing swollen feet is one of them. Although you need to check with your doctor if your body is fit enough to be exercising and what type of exercise you can do, exercise can help prevent swollen feet.  Exercising assists the body in many ways with blood circulation.

  1. Foot Soak

A good soaking always does the trick even if it’s once a week. Try and soak your feet and once you done moisturise it with  Happy Event.
