Dr. R. Wayne Inzer
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
Can't always: Good prenatal care, blood pressure control, good nutrition, adequate weight gain in pregnancy can all help. There are some conditions outside of your control that cause iugr, then the goal is adequate prenatal support and choosing the best time for delivery, important to work with your dr on these goals.

Help grow small baby: Dr inzer is correct. Iugr is restriction of fetal growth which can be due to many causes, some beyond control of the expectant woman. No matter what the cause, however, following a healthful diet, resting as needed, avoiding toxins like tobacco smoke, alcohol, etc. Are very important. Also essential is keeping all appointments for OB visits, ultrasounds, monitoring and reporting problems asap.
