The amniotic fluid or water in general terms, is the fluid that surrounds the foetus in the mother’s womb. The fluid performs various functions which include cushioning the baby against any external pushes, carrying nutrition and oxygen to the baby, etc.
However, after 36 weeks of pregnancy, the fluid level starts to decrease to prepare your body for the delivery of the baby. It is possible that the fluids start leaking at some point and the level of fluids starts decreasing drastically.
This case of fluid leak out is known as oligohydramnios. A common reason for the leaking of the fluid is due to the rupturing of the amniotic sac.
The condition, if not bought in notice on time can lead to:
- Birth defects
- Premature birth
- Still birth
- Other complications in the birth giving process
- Or even miscarriage
The importance of knowing about it is hence all the more important to bring it to the notice of your Gynaecologist at the earliest and do the most favourable thing as per your condition.
This, along with many other pregnancy conditions is patiently and expertly dealt with in Bansal Global Hospital. Our team along with specialist doctors are determined to serve you the best.
