World Clubfoot Day 3rd June 2014 100th Birthday!

So today is World Clubfoot Day! It's the 3rd of June, Dr Ponseti's Birthday.


By now if you're a follower of mine you probably already know who Dr Ponseti is... However if you're new to this page I'll give you a brief recap... This is who Dr Ponseti is -

This man is the very reason Hugo hasn't needed operation after operation. 
Dr Ponseti spent years trying to fine an alternative cure for clubfeet. 
He is the man that has helped our little happy feeter's to walk. 

Take a look at the Ponseti Method 


Boots and Bar CAN be fashionable :) Taz at Bar Bumpers fabulous creation

Remember to check out the STEPS website too especially if you've just found out your baby has Talipes...
In the UK, 1 or 2 in every 1,000 babies are born with Talipes/Clubfoot - thats the equivalent to 1 child in every secondary school in the UK.
World Clubfoot takes place on 3 June 2014 (Today) This marks the 100th Birthday of Dr Posneti.

STEPS has started the Silly Socks 2014 campaign

Most of us Mums & Dads with Talipes babies have been put in touch with STEPS - 
STEPS are a small national charity supporting children and adults affected by a lower limb condition such as clubfoot or a hip condition. Their website is a great source of information but if you would like to talk to someone please call their helpline on 01925 750271 or email info@steps-charity.org.uk
