Your Kid's Health and Safety / All about Clubfeet
« on: October 28, 2009, 11:27:24 am »
Hi mommies,

just want to ask if there's any parent here who gave birth to a clubfeet/clubfoot ?

When i gave birth to my bunso we were surprised to know that he has bilateral clubfeet. Clubfeet is such a new word to us.  Clubfoot is not caught in any of the several ultrasounds i had.

It is important for new parents to know that they are not alone in this, even if they had never heard of clubfoot prior to the diagnosis of their child nor birth of their child (as in my case).  It is estimated that one in a thousand children are born with clubfoot every year.

We found out that giving birth to a clubfoot child is not the end of the World...Dr. Ignacio Ponseti gave us hope by introducing the non-surgical way of treating clubfoot - the Ponseti Method.

Clubfoot can be treated.  The difficult part is the finding "the right doctor" who practice Ponseti Method... The onus is always on the parents to know if their doctor is 100% practicing the Ponseti Method.

Please dont get me wrong here, i am not selling anything - just sharing information about clubfoot.

If you gave birth to a clubfoot/clubfeet child, on what stage of treatment are you now?
