In brief: Fluid around baby

Amniotic fluid is the fluid that surrounds and protects the baby.
The baby makes the amniotic fluid. How much fluid you drink, how well the placenta works and how the baby is doing all affect how much fluid there is. Too much fluid can be concerning as can too little fluid.
