    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Have you asked your feet how they feel lately? Do they feel like they have changed shape and become someone else? Read Pregnant Women Put Fashion Before Foot Health to gain knowledge and tips on how to relieve your feet, ankles, calves, and even knees.

    According to The Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists in the U.K., "70% of pregnant women suffer from foot problems like swollen ankles (37%), swollen feet (45%), and arch and heel pain (16%)." Unfortunately, many of these sufferers are not helping their footsies by wearing the latest trendy heals and other non-supportive footwear. "Podiatrists are urging women to wear supportive, wide-fitting shoes to stay comfortable and avoid long-term damage."

    After checking out the article, please share your stories on what has helped you find foot relief. Maybe you will help another mother find some relaxation and relief at the end of her day! :-D
    Best Wishes!
