Default Unknown Birthmark on my newborn girl

My newborn has a birthmark on her ankle and we are unsure of the type. We are going to see a specialist once she gets a little older but from my googling, I can't work it out if it's a port wine stain or some sort of vascular malformation. It's not raised at all and is mainly a light pink colour that is fairly splotchy. See photos.

Anyone have any idea?

Hi and welcome!

It looks like a port wine stain, but you do need to go to see a specialist for a solid diagnosis.

Congratulations on your daughter! Enjoy!
