There can be many causes of congenital limb deformaties. One is amniotic band syndrome. This happens when the inner layer of the amniotic sac ruptures and causes bands of tissue that can wrap around and constrict growth of parts of limbs. Other causes can be genetic, as part of other syndromes, but most are spontaneous and a cause can't be found. I would take her to a pediatric orthopedic specialist to start.
