Question:I have less Aminotic fluid i.e 12.8 ... How to increase it or whether it s normal .?
Amniotic fluid index(AFI),should be at any stage during pregnancy is between 10- 18. Ideally 12 is good. .as high AFI could make the normal delivery difficult and you could deliver through c section .also low AFI could give you preterm delivery. Risks: 1- baby could not develop lungs and muscles well.as from second trimester,baby starts to swallow the fluid and recycle it 2- increased chance of miscarriage or still birth 3-preterm birth Treatment: 1- plenty of fluids to be taken.barley water is good in such conditions. 2- some cases IV fluids are administered 3- injecting fluids through amniocentesis 4- amnio infusion through catheter during labor.
