Diagnosed with low amniotic fluid of 8. Will I have normal delivery?

Hello Doctor, I am in my 7th month of pregnancy and diagnosed with low amniotic fluid of 8.

Doctor advised me amino drips twice a week.I am also taking ECOSPRIN once a day and ALAMIN R sachets twice a day.

I want to know will there be any complications during my delivery? Will it be a normal delivery or c-section?  Please advise.

  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.
    Oligohydramnios can lead to the following problems when occurring during the third trimester:
    - Fetal growth restrictions,
    - Complications like an umbilical cord compression during labor or at the time of birth (the umbilical cord is responsible for carrying oxygen and food to the fetus, so its compression prevents the baby from getting enough nutrition and oxygen)
    - Cesarean delivery
    Medicines as already prescribed by your doctor are very helpful to prevent further progression of oligohydramnios .

    Hope this answers your query. Feel free to write back to us with follow-up questions.
