Can I Wear Heels During Pregnancy?

By Amy Morrison

If you're reading this post, chances are you're wondering if it's safe to rock your favorite heels while pregnant. The answer? Probably.

Here's what you need to know about wearing high heels when you're pregnant:

First, let's talk about your balance. As your body changes during pregnancy, your center of gravity shifts, making you more prone to falling. This means that wearing high heels can increase your risk of taking a tumble.

While your body changes quickly, it doesn't change hourly, so I feel like you could get a handle on your stability and make that call yourself.

Second, let's talk about your feet. Swelling is common during pregnancy, and your feet are no exception.

Heels can exacerbate this swelling and can also cause discomfort or even pain. Like all your shoes, a pair that fit before pregnancy might not fit the same during pregnancy which is a special kind of bummer when you've dropped some serious coin on some gorgeous heels.

In conclusion, wearing high heels during pregnancy can be safe in moderation and with caution. If they feel comfortable and you don't feel like a teetering Wacky Waving Inflatable Tube Guy, go for it!
