Thanks for writing to health care magic.

There is no medicine or treatment which can regenerate the brain which has atrophied due to hypoxia. The problem might have occur because the baby did not breath immediately after birth.

With proper training your child may acquire certain milestones. So proper rehabilitation is important.

Continue to ask further queries as required.
Hope this helps.
Take care.
