In brief: Low amniotic fluid
Amniotic fluid levels are a indicator of good fetal health.
Sometimes low fluid can just be representative of poor maternal hydration. Other times low fluid (oligohydramnios) can represent an adverse intrauterine enviorment due to many medical problems like hypertension or preeclampsia. Certain fetal and placental issues can also cause low fluid. Diagnosis and treatment can increase fluid.
