Figure 1.112. The same infant showing the position of the feet in utero, suggesting that the defect occurred as a result of a congenital postural deformity. In infants with clubfoot occurring as a congenital malformation, skin dimples are not present at the ankles, whereas in infants with clubfoot associated with postural deformations, dimples may be present over the joint as is noted in this infant.

Figure 1.113. Bilateral clubfoot in an infant with myotonic dystrophy. The lack of fetal movement in utero caused this deformity. Clubfoot is commonly seen in infants with neuromus-cular diseases such as neural tube defects and amyotonia congenita (Oppenheim's disease).

Pregnancy Diet Plan

Pregnancy Diet Plan

The first trimester is very important for the mother and the baby. For most women it is common to find out about their pregnancy after they have missed their menstrual cycle. Since, not all women note their menstrual cycle and dates of intercourse, it may cause slight confusion about the exact date of conception. That is why most women find out that they are pregnant only after one month of pregnancy.
