My primary pregnancy complaint is that I have considerable lower back pain throughout the duration of my pregnancy. I can’t sit in normal dining room chairs, my kid is too heavy to carry, and at the end of the night my husband has to literally help me out of the sofa. Getting out of bed to go pee in the middle of the night can bring me to my knees, the larger my belly grows.
I’ve even admitted to dreaming about my chiropractor.
The one thing that has primarily helped me with dealing with back pain is wearing a good supportive shoe every day. I know, there are a slew of cheap-o cute shoes on the market, but for me and my body, it’s just not worth it.
It was sometime during my second pregnancy (2006-ish) when I discovered the Dansko brand. My feet, my everyday life, has never been the same. Hands down, Dansko shoes give THE BEST support my spine has ever had. What’s so amazing about them is that you get a really supported foot, taking the pressure off your knees and back. I love that my feet don’t feel cramped in the shoes. A good Dansko fit means that your toes can easily wiggle around your heel moves around freely as well.

So yeah, you could say that I’ve been a super fan of Dansko for some time now. And yes, I might recommend them to every pregnant friend I know.

My favorite? The Kody. Oh, how I love Kody. (pictured above)
