Question: Hi, what is the reason for less amniotic fluid and how it can be increased
Answer: Hello dear. One of the simplest ways to increase your amniotic fluid is to make sure that you are always hydrated. When you increase the amount of water you have in your body, your amniotic fluid levels will also rise. Drink water throughout the day and try to drink at least 8 to 10 glasses at a minimum. Eat fruits that contains more water. Lie on your left side when you relax, when you lie on your left side, your blood flows more smoothly through the uterine blood vessels and allows your baby’s blood flow to also move at a regular rate. This may cause the amniotic fluid index to rise. Take care.
