Answer: Hello! Mostly, expectant mums with polyhydramnios are advised to rest and to avoid activities that make them breathless. In some cases, a drug might be prescribed to reduce the amount of urine the baby passes. If you have severe polyhydramnios, you may need some of the amniotic fluid to be drained off to reduce the risk of premature labour or problems with the placenta. The procedure itself can be risky, though, sometimes causing infection, bleeding and problems with the placenta, so in most cases expectant mums are advised to take early maternity leave and rest as much as possible. Remember: the majority of mums with polyhydramnios, give birth to perfectly healthy babies.
