Daughter born with Congenital Hip Displasia in both Hips

Remote Name:


My baby girl was born on the 22/4/00 and was found to have Congital Hip Dispalsia in both hips badly (which apprently is quite rare) due to very little fluid in the uterus. Was put in a Von Rosen Splint at 4 days and had it on for 8 weeks. Xrays yesterday showed everything looks good so far we just have to wait and make sure that she can walk properly. I'd like to hear from anyone with children who have been born with this condition and especially those who have used the Von Rosen Splint.
