I had a baby girl 5 Months ago. Natasha she was born with Club Foot. They found it on my 20 week scan.
We had to take her to Booth Hall Hospital in Manchester, Not thinking good thoughts not knowing what to expect. When we got there the staff were really good. Talked us through what was going to happen. She had to have plaster casts from the tip of her toes to the top of her hip. She had 3 casts then she had an opperation called an Tenotomy, put her in plaster for another 2 weeks, they then put her in boot and bars for 3 months night and day. They were a pain at first. We reacently went back the boots are now off she only has to wear them for 14 Hours a day. Till about the age of 4 years. Mainly at night. They have said she has got the perfect correction thats needed, so there is no long term damage. i will post some photos soon.
would like to hear your storys.
