Foetal hydronephrosis is not normal. However most can get better with time, depending upon how dilated the system is. Can you please share the measurements. It is recommended to perform an ultrasound scan after 48 hours of birth and see a paediatric Surgeon/ Paediatric Urologist. If you are in Lahore, you can come to see me and we can take it from there.

What about the fluid in uterus
If amniotic fluid is ok then the other kidney is performing fine and pregnancy may continue
But serial ultrasonography is helpful along with fetal chromosomal analysis
You should meet a fetal medicine expert
