Not sure if this is the place to post this so apologies if not!
I am 26 weeks pregnant and the scan shows our baby has extra toes and fingers, My partner has this as well. I have looked on the internet for other people or forums or soemthing but cant find anything. I just wanted to know other families that has babies with this so I know what to expect when it comes to operations and that sort of thing. Can anyone help or know where to look?

You could try posting on the special needs section of mumsnet. A wide range of mums go on there so there's a better chance of catching somebody with some experience of this.

Google Kamani Hubbard if you want to see an example (6 fingers and 6 toes on each hand and foot)

Its called Polydactyly

As far as I am aware they do not like to operate and remove them unless they cause a real problem with things like shoes or writing. Its documented most people adapt well and do not need or want surgery
