“Are bunions more prevalent when I become pregnant? We get asked that all the time. The answer is, definitely. People do often see a bunion form while they are pregnant. The reason is, is because of the changes within your connective tissue, it’s because of a hormone called relaxin, which any pregnant woman knows a lot more about than I do. And what it’s actually doing is it actually loosens your connective tissue and if you have a genetic tendency toward a bunion, it can start to accelerate that bunion, in the way you stand and the way you walk. The great news is we can successfully manage that, and we can successfully treat that in many cases.
