In brief: Not Downs

Club foot is not necessarily related to downs syndrome and is usually its own finding.
Fixing a club foot should be done when the baby is an infant. Serial casting is the most common treatment. If done correctly, the results are very good. In some cases, surgery is required, but an exam is required to know the best treatment.

In brief: Significant problem

These features suggest a worrisome condition that is best assessed after delivery.
This is possibly a syndrome involving the absence of the radius&deformed ulna, abnormal feet or legs; blood abnormalities & a variety of other abnormalities.The condition has genetic implications and a confirmation by a qualified geneticist is important for the family & future pregnancies.
