Home > Patients & Visitors > Health Library > Pregnancy: Changes in Feet and Ankles
Some changes in your feet and ankles are normal during
pregnancy. These symptoms occur from normal
hormonal changes and increased body weight and usually
go away after delivery. Many women see a change in shoe size during pregnancy
and that may not go away later.
