Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Deficiency of amniotic fluid or oligohydramnios can be caused by many possibilities, including:
presence of a disorder (birth defect) in the baby's urinary tract
disorders of the placenta
the presence of amniotic fluid leak
other disorders in pregnancy such as dehydration, hypertension, preeclampsia, diabetes, etc.
Lack of amniotic fluid can cause various complications in pregnancy. If it occurs early in pregnancy, amniotic fluid deficiency can cause impaired organ development to cause severe birth defects in babies and increase the risk of miscarriage and the baby died in the womb. If it occurs in the middle to the end of pregnancy, amniotic fluid deficiency can cause fetal developmental disorders (IUGR), increase the risk of preterm labor, complications in labor such as stress on the umbilical cord, green amniotic fluid, to warn of the risk of labor by cesarean section.
Handling for amniotic fluid must be adjusted according to how lack of amniotic fluid, its causes, and also the gestational age of the mother. The doctor can recommend giving birth early, amnio-infusion either before or during labor (if it is still planned for normal labor), adding fluids through infusion or just asking the mother to drink more fluids. Obstetricians who carry out checks on your wife must also have given suggestions for actions to be carried out based on clinical findings.
Regarding whether or not your wife can give birth normally, again this should be asked directly to the obstetrician who checks your wife. Your obstetrician needs to look at the distance of the pregnancy from previous labor, see the thickness of the stitches in the uterus, and also consider other possible complications (oligohydramnios also one of them) to make a decision whether labor can be done normally or should have a cesarean section again. Follow the advice of the obstetrician who checks your wife to ensure the safety of the mother and the baby in her womb. Prepare yourself and your wife if the doctor decides to have a cesarean section again.
