Answer: Hello, amniotic band syndrome is a rare condition caused by strands of the amniotic sac that separate and entangle limbs, or other parts of the fetus.
Amniotic band syndrome occurs when the inner membrane (amnion) ruptures, or tears, without injury to the outer membrane (chorion). The developing fetus is still floating in fluid but is then exposed to the floating tissue (bands) from the ruptured amnion. This floating tissue can become entangled around the fetus.
Band wrapped around fingers or toes of the fetus can result in amputations of the fingers or toes. A band wrapped around a limb, arm or leg resulting in restriction of movement leading to deformities such as clubbed foot.
Amniotic band syndrome causes no increased risk for the mother during pregnancy. Most complications of amniotic bands are handled after birth. please do not worry everything will be ok. Hope this helps.
