Children with Talipes (Club Foot)

If you have visited 'Children with Talipes' before you will have noticed a few changes! The domain name should be easier to remember, and I am now expanding the site. The original site, 'Children with Talipes', includes some details about the condition, and describes my daughter's treatment. There is also a page of links that I have found useful, and a guestbook.


When my daughter was born with clubfoot I knew nothing about it. As I started my search for information about clubfoot I was very frustrated to find that there is little information available. Therefore, I decided to develop this site so that other parents would not have to go through this long process blindly as I did.

INTRODUCTION Clubfoot is a congenital foot condition, which affects approximately 1 out of every 1000 births in the United Kingdom.

Personal site - Rose's Clubfoot Page

Rose was born January 30, 1999 at 8:23 p.m. She weighed 6 pounds 10 ounces, and she was 19 inches long. When I (Joy) was handed my precious little bundle, I noticed that her left foot didn't look right and mentioned it to the nurses. I was told it was no big deal and a doctor would come and see it in the morning. I prayed about it, but I was so absorbed in what a miracle she was that I didn't dwell on it. The next day the doctor diagnosed Rose as having a clubfoot.

Twenty years ago, families of children with lower limb abnormalities had nowhere to turn. This was the situation Sue Banton found herself in following the birth of her son Daniel with club feet. The frustration and isolation she faced motivated her to set up STEPS as a self-help group in 1980. Eight years later, STEPS became a registered charity and now helps over 2,000 families a year.
