When you’re pregnant, it may not be just your belly which is growing – your feet may be growing as well. Foot growth during pregnancy is due to a number of factors: swelling, weight gain, and the fact that there is a hormone called “relaxin” coursing through your veins and relaxing all of your joints and ligaments.
For some moms, after the baby has been delivered they find that their former foot size has been restored. For others they may find that their foot size has been permanently changed – likely due to falling arches and the permanent loosening of your foot’s ligaments.
It may be disappointing to try to put your feet in a pair of shoes which no longer fit. But one benefit is that this does give you an excuse to go shoe shopping!
A piece of advice: when shopping for new shoes, do so while also planning your brand new post-baby wardrobe. Here at Peachymama, we offer moms a stunning line of fashionable yet comfortable pants which moms can wear now and even when their babies are toddlers, preschoolers, school-age and beyond. To make your shopping trip for new shoes easier, we have laid out which pants work best with which type of shoe below.

Ankle boots with a heel
Booties with a heel
