Experts have warned that pregnant women who continue to wear high heels are putting their feet at risk.
Lorraine Jones, a spokeswoman for the Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists, revealed that women risk causing long term damage to their joints and ligaments if they insist on wearing stilettos during pregnancy.
She explained: ‘Weight gain and hormonal changes in pregnancy have a huge impact on the body. Muscles and ligaments soften and stretch because of an increase in the ovarian hormone relaxin, which makes your feet more prone to ankle and ligament strains on a daily basis.’
