Growing healthy little feet with Dotty Fish

We all want to do the best for our children. I remember my parents being careful what shoes they bought me when I was growing up, as they knew the importance of looking after children’s feet carefully as they grow.

An open letter to the doctor who didn’t take me seriously

An open letter to the doctor who didn’t take me seriously
