Best Shoes for Pregnant Nurses: Buying Guide

Even though you may ignore buying new shoes for pregnancy, when it comes to your health, you need to do so. During pregnancy, the weight and shape of the body change as it prepares for birth. That is why you need to have footwear to support your body.

Here are tips on how to choose the best shoes for pregnant nurses.

Get a Bigger Size of the Shoe

While we like buying shoes that fit us perfectly, you need to get shoes that are bigger in size. The reason is that your feet will elongate and swell a lot during pregnancy and so you need to have the right shoe.

Make sure you have enough space in the shoe to avoid putting pressure on the shoe.

Choose a Slip-on Shoe

As your belly grows, you may find it hard to bend and something as simple as tying the laces may be a total challenge. With slip-on shoes, you can easily put them on by simply sliding your feet into the shoes without asking for help.

Prefer Removable Insoles

During pregnancy, your weight changes and the same happen to the center of your gravity. To effectively support your back and feet, make sure you have supportive insoles. That is why you need to get shoes with removable insoles to help you use the right ones at the moment.

With removable insoles, you do not have to replace the entire shoe.

Slip Resistance

During pregnancy, the center of gravity changes and you might experience imbalance. Even a simple mistake when stepping may cause a slip or fall which is very dangerous for both you and the baby.

Therefore, you need to get shoes that come with a strong sole and slip-resistant.

Such shoes will protect you from injuring your ankles, knees, and feet when you slip. The excess weight on the belly means that even a slight fall pouts great force on the knees. To make sure that you are safe, it is good to make sure that you have the right shoes when it comes to traction.

Body Stability

The best maternity shoes are the ones that offer enough stability. Such types of shoes come with cushions that prevent excess motion in pregnant nurses. Such shoes come with great heel support that resists extreme pressure.

Best Shoes for pregnancy nurse during walk on outside

With the shoe, you are able to move around sure that you are safe from falls and other dangers associated with unstable shoes.

Great Arch Support

Due to pregnancy, a huge weight is exerted on the feet. Therefore, it is important to get shoes that offer enough support to the arch area. If your feet tendons on the arch are stressed, that can lead to permanent and severe damage to the feet.

With that in mind, make sure you get the shoe that supports the arch to make sure that it does not stretch too much as you walk. Such feet are the ones that take the shape of your foot as you walk.


When you are pregnant, you already have more weight than your normal weight and adding more weight will add to your problems. The last thing you want is to deal with heavy shoes on your swollen feet. Therefore, buy shoes that are lightweight but that comes with high quality.

Always avoid heavy shoes and most especially boots that put more pressure on the foot. Heavy shoes can lead to permanent damage!

Get Shoes with Rubber Soles

When you are pregnant you do not have balance and so you need enough traction. Rubber is an awesome shock absorber and helps in alleviating some of the discomforts that come due to pregnancy.

Rubber soles also offer great grip to help you avoid slips and falls.

Low Heel

Never wear high heels when pregnant! The best shoe for you is the low heel one. The reason is that the low heel offers more stability when compared to a high heel. Besides, heels can harm not only your back but your knees and feet as well.  Low heels also support and protect your feet. https://www.youtube.com/embed/w_NYTn43HtY


While it is a common belief that a pregnant woman should only wear soft shoes, it is not entirely true. Especially if you are a nurse and you have to go to the store to get drugs or rush to the ER.

In such a case, you need to wear a shoe that offers enough arch support to protect the feet from damages.

As long as you choose any of the above pregnancy shoes for nurses, you will have maternity footwear that will serve you for over nine months of pregnancy effectively and comfortably.

Why Is Good Footwear Important During Pregnancy?

During pregnancy, your feet swell just like the rest of your body. Water retention in the body will only add to this swelling. Also, the rise in upper body weight puts pressure on the knees, ankle, and feet. Thus, good quality shoes suitable for maternity can help relieve some of the pain. A good pair of shoes can prevent pain in the hips and back and eliminate the risk of slipping or tripping over.

What Makes For An Ideal Maternity Footwear?

Consider the following features when choosing shoes or sandals during pregnancy.

  1. Slips on easily on foot without you having to bend
  2. Big in size to accommodate your growing feet
  3. Provides good arch and ankle support

Any pair of shoes fulfilling these qualities can prove to be a good choice.

Types Of Maternity Footwear

Pregnancy footwear is not different from regular footwear except for the size and comfort level. Pointed heels are a big no-no during pregnancy. However, a pair of shoes with a two-inch heel should do no harm as long as it is not pointed.

These are some of the different types of flat and comfortable shoes that soon-to-be mothers can opt for:

  1. Casual shoes: Regular closed-toe shoes without laces are great options if you are looking for comfort.
  2. Sneakers: Athletic shoes are perfect for every girl when it comes to comfort wear. Sneakers with an extra-flexible rubber outsole and soft rubber insole make walking comfortable.
  3. Boots: Stretchable boots with a wide calf can be comfortable during cold winters. And they look fashionable as well.
  4. Sandals: Sandals keep the feet fresh and allow the skin to breathe. A sandal is great to wear during summers.
  5. Crocs: Crocs are lightweight, comfortable, and easy to clean.
  6. Loafers: These are low-heeled shoes that not only provide comfort but also look great.
  7. Canvas shoes: These shoes do not trap moisture, and so they keep your feet dry and comfortable. You can opt for these when spending time outdoors.

Shoe shopping during pregnancy can be frustrating because your feet swell up and contract frequently. It is always advisable to opt for shoes that are stretchable and can accommodate this frequent change in feet size.
