Q.

Twisted leg

My sister gave birth to s baby girl last night at 19H20, and it was natural birth however, the baby's right leg is twisted facing upwards and her Gaynae told it could be the way the baby was positioned in the uterus, a paediatrician was called last night but said he will examine the baby this morning, since I'm at work I am unable to communicate with the Dr and now my sister is saying a nurse told her that they have called a shrink to speak with her about the baby, can the situation with the baby be rectified?

Thanks

I am not sure what is wrong with your new baby niece from your description. It could be a problem known as club foot which is very successfully treated these days.
