Types of Kidney Defects

A number of birth defects may result in abnormal kidneys. Kidneys may be
  • In the wrong location (ectopic kidneys)
  • Rotated the wrong way (malrotation)
  • Joined together (horseshoe kidney or fused kidneys)
  • Missing (agenesis)
  • Poorly functioning
  • Containing fluid-filled sacs (cysts), such as in polycystic kidney disease and multicystic dysplastic kidney

Kidneys in the wrong location and position

In the fetus, kidneys first develop in the pelvis and then move up and rotate into their normal location in the upper abdomen. If the kidneys are in the wrong place (ectopic kidneys) or are not rotated properly (malrotation), the normal drainage of urine from the kidneys through the ureters (the tubes that transport urine from the kidneys to the bladder) to the bladder (the expandable, muscular sac that holds urine) may be blocked.

Children who have blockage that causes frequent urinary tract infections or other problems may need surgery. However, many children do not have symptoms and thus may not need surgery.

My advise
1...  Your positive thinking can avoid wrong location ie  ectopic kidneys, wrong location ......
2...  I advise every couple to develop positive thinking before you conceive.
