Because doctors don't know what causes clubfoot, you can't completely prevent it. However, if you're pregnant, you can do things to limit your baby's risk of birth defects, such as clubfoot, including:

  • not smoking or spending time in smoky environments
  • not drinking alcohol
  • avoiding drugs not approved by your doctor
