Should Pregnant Kate Middleton Stop Wearing High Heels? Do You Think This Is Any Of Your Business?

kate middletonRemember when an adorable Kate Middleton told a guardsman on St. Patrick’s Day that she kinda, sorta wants a little boy, instead of a fairytale princess? Well you guys probably didn’t notice because you were busy living your lives, but the Duchess and royal fetus carrier was wearing high heels while she was out celebrating green beer day. Cue the concern-trolling!

High heel concern has become the latest media concoction to continue churning out headlines about celebrity pregnancy. It plagued moms like Victoria Beckham and Snooki. I mean, there’s only so many times you can talk about baby weight gain and tabloids need months of pregnancy material. Get ready for in depth conversations about the effects of shapewear on a growing fetus. Oh wait, we already do that, too.

So what do people have to say about Kate and her seriously modest high heels? A Beverly Hills Podiatric Surgeon warns, “When you’re pregnant you’re going to change the center of gravity… Fall over you’re going to hurt yourself and hurt the baby.” It’s worth noting that your center of gravity changes whether your in heels or not. And you can fall whether you’re in heels or not.

Are high heels the most sensible shoe option? No, whether your pregnant or not. But some women like them and they get to wear them. Human beings in general get to choose their footwear. It’s one of those rights we’re always so passionate about.

The idea that we even feel entitled to have opinions about Kate Middleton’s shoes is just so ridiculous. Now let’s get back to obsessing over whether she’s going to have a boy or girl and what she eats to relieve all that morning sickness. Hint: It’s lavender shortbread cookies.

    I don’t think this is a big issue because I bet when she isn’t out and about doing her royal highness duties, she is like every other pregnant woman in yoga pants curled up on the couch with her feet on the ottoman.

    I used to teach with these two uber fashionable ladies who wore high heels to work every single day. One day I asked them how they were able to be up and around in those heels teaching all day long. And the answer? They each kept comfy slippers under their desk and taught in those and saved the heels for trips down the hall or into the office. Ha! Maybe Kate is taking a similar approach?!

    I think wearing heels is the same whether you’re pregnant or not: wear them if you’re comfortable, don’t if you’re not. The only difference is pregnant ladies are probably more likely to feel uncomfortable.

    Ain’t no baby gettin’ me outta my Louboutins.

    Honestly, she’s probably spent more time in heels than half the readers of this article put together. If anyone’s not going to trip, it’s her.

    My feet were so swollen during pregnancy that I was lucky if I could fit into a pair of flip-flops much less designer heels. But hey, more props to you if you can do it.

    Actually I’m the last person who should be wearing heels because I’m such a klutz, but damn, I like shoes.

    I love that all of these people that complain that pregnant women wear heels don’t even stop to imagine that there might be a reason. I am not someone who could usually be found in heels pre-pregnancy. I’m 6 months pregnant now and have developed sciatic nerve pain. What helps it? Wearing wedges/heels instead of flats. Now, I will admit that I choose the wedges because my balance sucks and I have bad ankles, but I wear my wedges every day because it makes the pain go away. Kate Middleton has had a rocky time anyway, whose business is it that pregnant women wear heels? As long as their baby is okay, chill.
