Swollen Ankles and Feet
Women retain 30% more water in the bloodstream during pregnancy to help with fetal development. Gravity forces some of this water out of the blood vessels and into the tissues of the legs and feet, where it causes painful swelling known as peripheral edema.
This condition tends to be worse after a long day of standing or walking. It is also worse in the third trimester, when the growing uterus pushes on the largest vein in the body (the vena cava), which further raises the pressure of the water being pushed out into the tissue.
Mild swelling is best relieved by taking short breaks during the day where you elevate your legs above the level of your heart. Light massage of the swollen areas helps relieve swelling, and feels great too.
The Balm is perfect for muscle massage and leaves skin feeling soft and supple.
