Question: How to increase amniotic fluid levels mine is 7
Answer: Hi dear,
Amniotic fluid index(AFI),should be anywhere between 10- 18. Yours seems to be quite low.Ideally 12 is good. But since your level is borderline,I would advice you to consult doctor.as high AFI could make the normal delivery difficult and you could deliver through c section .also low AFI could give you preterm delivery. low AFI has few reasons:
birth defects,which could give kidney problems or urinary tract issues in baby.placental problem.if the placenta is not providing enough nutrition to baby,then baby would stop recycling fluid.if mother has fluid early leakage.maternal complications like diabetes,high BP. dehydration
baby could not develop lungs and muscles well.as from second trimester,baby starts to swallow the fluid and recycle it.increased chance of miscarriage or still birth.preterm birth
plenty of fluids to be taken.barley water is good in such conditions.some cases IV fluids are administered. injecting fluids through amniocentesis. amnio infusion through catheter during labor,..,
