Marie, my doctor told me that I had a very low volume of amniotic fluid. I will have another ultrasound next week to see if it changes. I am 36 weeks pregnant, is it dangerous for my baby? I forgot to ask my doctor as I was in a state of shock.

Thank you, France

That’s a good question France. A very low percentage of women will have a low or very low volume of amniotic fluid. This pregnancy complication is called oligohydramnios. As your doctor advised, an ultrasound will allow them to monitor the situation to evaluate the risks and option of giving birth early. Please read my article about low amniotic fluid volume, as you will learn more about your case.
