I immediately got back on the internet to research the “best” doctor in our area. I wanted to meet the doctor and be sure that he was qualified before the birth. I researched and found Dr. Kean at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus (he was the head of the orthopedics group). We met with the nurse practitioner who explained that our doctor was not Ponseti certified (no doctors are certified in Ohio) but that he practiced the method. I felt comfortable and prepared after our meeting.
On September 24, 2010 I went into labor and after 8 hours of labor, Knox was here. The OB put him on my chest and I immediately checked him over. I scanned every part of his body to be sure that his feet were the only issue. He was born at 37 weeks and 3 days weighing 6lbs 14oz and was perfect……….except for crooked little feet. We were instructed to call the orthopedic office once he was born so that he could be casted within the first week of life.
