Swelling in pregnancy: what to do about it?

Natural therapies such as lymphatic drainage, reflexology and acupuncture can work well for swelling.

Drinking more water can help to flush through any swelling, combined with gentle exercise such as waking or swimming.  While you are resting, keeping your legs elevated will help, too.

Swelling is a normal part of pregnancy, particularly towards the end of pregnancy.  It can also occur after the baby is born, and typically takes two to six weeks to resolve.  In this time, walking is a really good way to encourage the fluid out of the legs and feet.
