It is never a bad idea to bring up any questionable symptom you experience during your pregnancy with your doctor or midwife. The more they know about what your body is going through during pregnancy the better they will be able to help treat any symptoms or keep an eye out for any possible complications. A symptom that is common, especially in the third trimester is tingling and numbness in your feet. This episode answers a listener question about numbness in her feet, why this happens, and what you can do to prevent it.
