Abstract: The aim of the study is to evaluate the prevalence of severe oligohydramnios in third trimester of pregnancy and its outcome. The main objective is to study the risk factors, complications associated with severe oligohydramnios and its impact on fetal outcome. A prospective observational study was carried out in department of Obstetrics & Gynecology, M.G.M. Medical College, and Indore. M.P, India. 414 patients out of 19073 (2.17%) were admitted with Amniotic Fluid index AFI<5cms with intact membranes were analysed for perinatal outcome during the period January 2019 to December 2019. More patients were reported in the age group of 20-24 years. 37.3% of patients showed primigravida and 62.8% of patients showed multigravida. 37.44% of people showed gestational period of >40weeks. All patients showed AFI ≤5cm. Lower Segment caesarian Section (LSCS) was done in 69.56% of patients and 30.43% of patient’s undergone normal vaginal delivery. The patients in primigravida are more prone to oligohydramnios with associated factors such as GDM and anemia. In the third trimester, the complications resulting in the caesarian section was high in order to improve the fetal outcome. So timely screening for Amniotic fluid index (AFI) between intrapartum and postpartum pregnancy, proper antenatal checkup and lifestyle changes in patients helps to reduce the maternal risk factors and improve the fetal outcome.
