Today, thanks to advances in stem cell research, there is one more important decision for a new mom to make: to bank, or not to bank, her baby’s amniotic fluid. Because there are still many unknowns related to amniotic fluid and its potential for future uses, the decision to have it collected for storing is one you may want to discuss with your partner and your health care provider.

Because there are still many unknowns related to amniotic fluid and its potential for future uses, the decision to have it collected for storing is one you may want to discuss with your partner and your health care provider. As you consider the option of banking your baby’s amniotic fluid, weigh the pros and cons for yourself and keep these points in mind: The greatest advantage to preserving amniotic fluid cells is that your child will have access to cells that are fully compatible with his or her own body, if the need arises. Pregnancy provides a unique time to preserve amniotic fluid. Collecting amniotic fluid for banking is easy and safe during prenatal tests throughout the entire pregnancy beginning as early as the second trimester. This might take place during genetic amniocentesis or fetal lung maturity amniocentesis.

A: Rest assured, collecting amniotic fluid for banking during prenatal tests such as genetic amniocentesis and fetal lung amniocentesis will not change the amniocentesis procedure and will not have any impact on the tests results. Collecting Your Amniotic Fluid. It depends on who you ask.

Although commercial cord blood banks often bill their services as “biological insurance” against future diseases, the blood doesn’t often get used. One study says the. Amniotic fluid surrounds your baby in your womb.

It cushions your baby, and helps your baby’s lungs, digestive system, and muscles develop. While you’re pregnant, your doctor will keep track of. The baby also swallows the amniotic fluid, so the fluid is recycled by the fetus. Your body provides additional fluid to your fetus through blood flow to the placenta.

Fluids migrate between your body and the baby’s body. If you do not drink enough fluid, your baby might not have enough fluid in which to grow and thrive. Not usually.

Most cases of oligohydramnios in the third trimester won’t result in any complications for your baby. If the fluid level gets very low, though, there’s some risk to your baby because the umbilical cord can become squeezed, preventing.

However, weighing babies can be very useful when a baby is unwell or if there are concerns about intake and fluid and electrolyte balance.

Once data are available, fluids should be increased if weight loss is greater than 1% to 2% per day in term infants and 2% to 3% per day in preterm infants, if urine output is low, if urine specific gravity is rising, or if serum sodium concentration is rising.

  • My AFI is 4 I’m 22 weeks
    I have to see a specialist every 3 weeks also my regular ob every 4 weeks.
    They said baby is fine and growing fine, not to worry but they are still monitoring baby for low fluid:( I’m so scared I hope my baby girl is okay

  • “Even by fathers…”
    I don’t understand the underlying implication. Do you think they generally don’t care about the babies’ whereabouts or that they somehow ought to know this particular fact beforehand?

  • I had a C-section on June 11.2014 and my baby is still in the NICU.  My baby have TRANSIENT TACHYPNEA for now,my question is to you,how long was it before he started breathing normally? I’m worry.I’m going to leave everything in God hand.

  • Need urgent opinion mam, i m 39 week pregnant.. in sonography AFI is 2.1 n baby wt. Is 3494 dr. Suggested c section delivery… what should I do in this situation, should i wait for normal delivery or go for C section

  • Not entirely accurate! Babies don’t NEED to scream at birth. Some of the fluid reabsorbs. If babies “noisy” or shallow breathing persists after more than, lets say 30 mins depending on the general sate of the babe, then medical intervention is called for. Making a baby cry is not justified. IF you pay attention a baby that had a non violent birth either doesn’t cry or just whimpers a bit. On the other hand babies who’s head and body was pushed and probed and pulled will scream. A pain cry is very different!

  • Beth you’ve been through hell and back these past couple of weeks, and you still look beautiful. I hope you and baba get better soon!!! ��

  • Hey.. I am 34 weeks pregnant having 4.2 cm amniotic fluid much worried but thanks God baby is fine am having aminovel drips can anyone plz tell me are they effective or other tips to increase liquor

  • Hi mam mrs. Berth. Hope ur fine. I am from India. 33 week pregnant. My AFI is 8.55 cm. I am worrying.. i know well days goes it will fall. Full term is possible? Normal delivery possible? Any compilation? Kindly suggest…

  • My question is, with advancements in modern science is it possible to inhibit the closing of that artery and have a human that can live in an amniotic environment? or what I also want to know is it possible with science to expand the time a human develops in the womb for  FEW EXTRA MONTHS? can one delay birth? can we nurture a life inside an artificial womb>?

  • I don’t know why you straightforwardly jump to genetic abnormalities. Amniotic fluid levels also simply increase or decrease based on the week, growth of the baby, hydration of the mother and many common factors. Not everything leads to genetic abnormalities or placental issues.

  • Even by fathers

    Are we really going to perpetuate this stereotype that men shouldn’t seek to understand these biological processes? Just because it’s to do with babies?  

    ALL GENDERS need to stop handicapping each other with sexist stereotypes.

    P.S. sorry about the CAPS

  • I was 9days away from my due date and 7-8 cm was my amnotic fluid my doctor did csection �� they told me it’s v low and if we induce labor to you
    You will loose more amnotic fluid and baby can stuck in pelvic

  • This is my 2 nd poly pregnancy and am 37 weeks pregnant now….. my 1st baby is absolutely healthy and normal I mean with no abnormalities…..and I had c-section at that time before 4yrs….now am getting labour pain so can anyone tell me that is it safe to deliver this baby normally??

  • My sister in law is 5 months pragnant and she is having poly..as per her history her 1 baby girl was abnormal after that 2 sons are normal now doctor sugested her doppler ultrasound..she is v tense due to this.can u guide please

  • Hi. I’m having the same issues you had. This is scary! I don’t know why this is happening to me now. I only found it out when my 7 month started. Till 6 month everything was fine but past 3 weeks destroyed my hope and dreams. Every single sec is scary to live now I feel.
    However I’m at my 29 weeks now and not sure how far I can go with my baby alive inside of me. The baby is too small and my AF is also very low the doctors are saying.
    I really wanna know what Happened to you till the end??

  • my levels were at a 3 and i was admitted into the hospital and monitored for a week! if i went under 2, they would deliver right away.
    please get your proper checkups!

  • I’m 32 weeks with gestational diabetes and I’m just now finding out my fluid is on the low side I’m at a 7cm they told me 5 was too low, I’m so scared and worried, best of luck to you

  • Dani, we had preemie twins 1 month early, one was fine, the other never cried & struggled to breath for hours as the Dr. contemplated on a medevac to the nearest NICU.  The nurses connected him to oxygen via those tubes in his nose & monitored the saturation, however; My question for you is why the nurses never made an attempt to remove meconium by suction much earlier?  My wife was still recovering C-section as I stood there questioning everyone if there was anything else that could be done and was told that was the normal process.  Your thoughts?

  • Hi there, 
    The explanation provided in this video is a myth and no longer believed to be the actual mechanism for fluid resorption in the newborn.  It is more associated with changing hormones (epinephrine, thyroxine, vasopressin, glucocorticoids) that lead to changes of sodium resorption causing fluid to be reabsorbed by the body (lymphatics).  
    This article found at:  http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16549212  mentions this mechanism as well 

  • Glad to see your little is one still on the inside.:) I hope he stays there for a while longer yet, your doing great and I’m wishing you an uneventful and healthy few weeks.

    EDIT: Hi Beth I hope everything is going okay for you, your family and your new family member. Wishing you all the very best.:)

  • Ma’am my wife due date is Jan 17,2019 but doctor said water around baby is 6.5 condition in favour of normal delivery but she said its risky ND can’t wait pain so ceseasrian must do till 6,7 Jan… So ma’am what to do
