What causes babies to have clubfoot?
While no one knows the specific cause, clubfoot is believed to be both genetic and environmental. Clubfoot may have something to do with the position of the baby in the uterus. It has been noted that there is a decreased amount of amniotic fluid in the uterus during pregnancy. Sometimes babies with clubfoot also have cerebral palsy or spina bifida. The good news is that it is correctable when treatment starts early.
