Answer: Most cases of low amniotic fluid happen well into the third trimester, usually because your waters have broken. If your waters have broken early, you may go into premature labour. Doctors will weigh up the risks of this happening against the risk of infection if your baby stays in your womb. You may be given antibiotics to prevent infection affecting your baby. To keep you hydrated, you may also need extra fluids through a vein (intravenously), if your doctor has concerns.
Once in labor, low amniotic fluid can cause labour complications. For example, your baby may be in a bottom-down (breech) position, and not have enough room to turn into a head-down position.
