When a baby first discovers they’ve got feet, the look on their face is of absolute wonderment. For a baby who is yet to sit up, the feet are playful objects because the toes wiggle and the skin is sensitive to touch. Overtime, your child will gain enough strength to sit on it’s bottom with perfect posture , allowing them to take in their new surroundings. Slowly your child will become familiar with his surroundings and start to navigate them by crawling. Then comes the huge celebratory milestone of taking his first confident step.
This brings me to ask the question; at what point in our adult lives did we forget the importance of our feet? Well, there is no specific answer but we can remind ourselves of they’re importance in the hope that we rediscover them all over again.
Our feet are the foundation of our entire body, they help us run, walk, cycle, jump and dance. Most importantly they connect us to the ground and are in continuous relationship to gravity.
We are all familiar with the saying ‘Find Your Feet’ and the meaning according to Cambridge dictionary states “to become familiar with and confident in a new situation” so if you’re pregnant, now is the time to rediscover your feet. Your feet will support your changing body, keep you connected to the ground whilst you gain new confidence in your pregnant body. Your feet will enable you to stay in relationship to gravity whilst you carry your unborn baby. So go on! say hello to your feet, they’re there to support you always and forever!
