It’s perfectly normal for women to have a number of hospital checks on their babies in the lead-up to a birth. Utrasounds show the mother an image of her baby and help diagnose any potential issues. Whilst these scans can detect things like down syndrome, others conditions can slip under the radar.

Club foot is a condition that might not be picked up by an ultrasound scan. It can affect either one or both feet and forces the foot to face down, meaning it can’t be placed flat on the floor. Feet can also curve inwards, making it difficult to walk.

Club foot is normally apparent after birth. The condition can’t be treated until after the baby is born, but knowing about it does mean expectant parents have time to prepare relevant treatments with their doctors.
