STILETTOS DANGEROUS FOR PREGNANT WOMEN
posted: Dec 27, 2018.
Experts say glamorous celebrities like Jessica Simpson are setting a bad example for pregnant moms. Australian Podiatry Association delegate Brenden Brown said pregnant women need to be aware of the dangers of wearing stilettos, despite what celebrities do. "Wearing high heels at any time is an injury risk but this is significantly increased when pregnant, particularly in the later stages as you gain weight and body mass, which affects balance and puts stress on the feet and ankles.
"Such hormonal, physical changes also put strain on the lower back making this combination hard on the feet. Adding a pair of high heels to this mix is therefore an absolute no-no and should be avoided."
