Midwife pushed low lying foetus (urgent help!!!)?

My wife is 6 mths pregnant.
The baby is low lying and the doc says its small . wife is not taking dinner for the past 6 mts due to vomitting . she takes medicines. Her diet is small and cause of concern.

My aunt has midwife exp and is old woman . She saw my wife and suggest to drink water more. and then she massaged and pushed the baby up . I dont know how much pressure she applied. My wife may lie to avoid my anger. I wonder what to say...should i talk to my doc ....the foetus looks moved up side .

Babies move around. Its normal. As for being small that is Just a guess. By multiple ultrasounds my daughter was measuring almost a month small and at 39 weeks was born at 1 oz short of 7 lbs. Bigger than my daughter who was measuring right on.

I'm confused about what happened.  Is she still feeling movement?  If you get the feeling that things are not okay, you should call the OB.  I don't think that anyone other than her doctor should be trying to move or change the baby's position.
