In brief: Anomalies

No, there are no natural remedies for congenital anomalies.
Nature caused the anomalies in the fetus. Man has to rectify them either during the pregnancy or after birth. Every human being has a risk of having a child with an anomaly. The only thing found to reduce that risk, and its only for neural tube defects and cardiac defects, is to have the mother take Folic Acid daily prior to pregnancy.

In brief: No

Congenital anomolies usually stem from chromosomal defects, which affect every cell in the body.
There may be natural comfort measures that can be provided dependent on what the congenital anomaly is, but there will be nothing that treats the abnormality so that a normal state is achieved.
