Goodmorning beautiful people

Owk today was antenatal day at the clinic.. I came across a patient with swollen feet
Well that is one of the discomfort of pregnancy
It is caused by fluid retention in the body... Mild is nothing to worry about..it is also a symptom of preemclapsia in pregnancy especially when your blood pressure is beyond the normal...
But nothing to worry about when it's mild
All you need do is:
* drink enough water
*dont stand for long
* while sitting down.. Use a stool to support your feet
*try to sleep on your left side

Swollen feet at times in some pregnant women is as a result of pre eclampsia. Pre Eclampsia is a bad condition for women. The characteristics are always swollen feet (oedema) , high blood pressure (hypertension) then protein in the urine (proteinuria)


If a pregnant woman is having a swollen feet. Let check up be done to confirm is not pre eclampsia. Cause it can be critical once it turns Eclempsia.

Once she noticed any other thing join.... Like the above mentioned and any other abnormal feeling. She should kindly report to the hospital because if care is not taken, she can loose her child or she goes for it.
