Information

When my daughter was born, we were told she had a little problem with her feet, called Talipes, which would simply require some physiotherapy.

Bethany - click here to visit her site!That was my introduction to this condition, and I knew very little about it. There was only limited information available, and so I began to develop the website you are now visiting.

Bethany went on to require surgery when she was nine months old, which was thankfully very successful. For some, however, further treatment is needed, and problems can continue into adult life.

This site has been designed to offer both information and support. It is not a medical reference site, but is built on my own experience, plus the experience of the many people I have been in contact with.

Included are details about the condition, some of the treatment options available, plus ideas on what to take into hospital if your young child is undergoing surgery. Bethany's journal then goes on to describe her specific treatment, including my feelings as a parent.

I soon discovered how supportive it could be to talk to others in the same situation. The message board is available to ask questions, look for others near you, and to find that much needed support. There is also a section for adults with clubfoot, to discuss their own specific issues and problems.

In addition, I have provided links to the various e-mail support groups available, as well as links to personal pages.
