Keep Calm its a baby

Congratulations on your pregnancy! 

From Team Z-CoiL

We know a little about raising babies......but we know much, much more about taking care of your feet and your back while you are pregnant or have recently given birth. These are the facts when it comes to pregnancy:
  • Depending on the mother's health - it is recommended that she gain 20-40 lbs.
  • It is estimated that 43% of pregnant women gain more weight than is recommended.
  • Six weeks is just an "estimated" postpartum recovery time.
  • An estimated 90% of all women who give birth will experience back pain during pregnancy or shortly thereafter.
  • The CDC reports that anesthesia is used in three out of every five births, and the jury is out on whether anesthesia use is related to back pain.
  • A small number of pregnant women develop sciatica while pregnant.
  • The additional weight gain of pregnancy can cause foot pain due to over-pronation, fallen arches or plantar fasciitis.
  • Hormonal changes in pregnancy can loosen the joints and the ligaments that attach your pelvic bones to your spine, which can make you feel less stable and cause pain when you walk, stand, sit for long periods, roll over in bed, get out of a low chair or the tub, bend, or lift things.
  • Exhaustion is inevitable for the mother after birth, which makes it harder to recover from aches and pains, including back pain and foot pain.

I bought my Z-CoiL shoes in the beginning of my second pregnancy because of discomfort standing and walking during my first pregnancy. Immediately, I noticed that the discomfort went away and stayed away! No problems with discomfort during the pregnancy at all. I am planning to purchase a second pair (tennis shoes this time!). I only wish you made more styles in my size. Thank you for this wonderful invention. It made my second pregnancy so much easier.

I have been wearing my Sidewinder sandals for a few months now and I love them. I am a hairdresser in the last trimester of my pregnancy and a mother of three. I am on my feet the majority of the day. I have back problems and used to take pain relievers every day to ease the pain. But since I've been wearing these shoes, I have stopped doing so and have found that I am not as tired as I used to be at the end of the day. The pain I used to get down my legs has stopped and I also do not have heel pain anymore.

This was the best investment I have ever made on footwear. On March 14, 2008, I had major lower lumbar back surgery for an L5 herniated disc. I had discovered Z-CoiL online and browsed through stories of relief from pain through wearing this shoe. The shoe looked a little bit awkward and it was hard to believe the reason to wear this shoe was to feel better and pain-free. While suffering through recovery after my surgery, I tried to find a shoe that made it possible for me to walk comfortably and not feel the tightness in my back resulting from my back surgery. I finally gave in and contacted the nearest Z-CoiL store, which was in Rockville, MD, and pleaded my case for comfort. My first experience of wearing the Z-CoiL shoe was.... I turned and looked at my wife and said, "I am never taking these shoes off." My wife is also wearing Z-CoiL shoes for comfort and support due to being pregnant with our first set of twins. This was putting a definite strain on her back and giving her significant problems in her back, hips and knees while standing or walking. Well, not anymore! I am pain-free while still recovering from surgery. Now, I and my wife take daily walks without feeling the tightness in my back and her not feeling the weight of the twins. THANK YOU Z-COIL!

Four years ago I developed fibromyalgia while I was pregnant with my third child. It was such a stressful time that my leg muscles became really tight and I developed a case of plantar fasciitis that was so bad, I could barely stand without pain. With stretching, swimming, and orthotics, the pain would go up and down, but eventually, by this spring, I could only stand for about two hours a day without pain. I think my bad feet made my leg and back muscles tighter, which would strain my tendons and throw off my bone structure. Everything was feeding into everything! I couldn't break the cycle. The list of events and activities that I had to avoid became depressing. I was so impatient with my kids and disheartened that I couldn't run around and play with them. One night, in desperation, I Googled "My feet hurt." One of the links was for a nurse's blog where they were discussing how they almost had to quit their jobs due to foot pain, but then they started wearing Z-CoiL shoes. I was encouraged by an outside source recommending them, so I headed to the Z-CoiL website, but was intimidated by the odd look and the cost. What if I purchased them and it was a hoax? Well, in three days I was supposed to go away for a relaxing weekend with my sister in Kettle Morraine. The idea was to hike or bike, and I told her I wasn't sure I could do either of them. I thought, "What the heck." I would drive the six-hour round trip to get to Madison to buy these crazy shoes. It was 90 degrees and I had no air conditioning. I got to the store and tried on a pair of Z-CoiL shoes. At first the shoes felt odd and I was nervous that I wouldn't tell the shoe store if they were adjusted correctly (which would be another six-hour drive to fix them!). I decided on the sandals. I probably walked a mile in the shoe store making sure they were OK. I wore them around the house for the first two days and I could feel the "shelf-life" of my feet being extended. Three days later, I hiked in the woods for four hours in my Z-CoiL shoes with no more than a slight twinge here and there from the arches. I have been wearing them for a month now, and even though I don't understand the technology at all, I wear them from six in the morning until I lay down at night. I stand all day; I hike, grocery shop, stroll. I went to Summerfest and danced for four hours straight with the twenty-year-olds. I (gently) ran around the park playing soccer and baseball with my kids. I'm working on all my fibromyalgia symptoms in a global way, and I quickly noticed I have almost no muscle tone in my feet anymore from four years of avoiding standing and using inserts. So, I think it will take time before I can wear other shoes without discomfort. But there is no question about it, Z-CoiL shoes have given me my life back, where as before I was truly feeling like a shut-in at 40. If you are wondering if you should get a pair, don't even think about it. GO!!......Thanks again, Z-CoiL!
