Abstract: Amniotic fluid surrounding the fetus is an important biophysical marker of fetal wellbeing. Quantification of amniotic fluid is an important component of the biophysical profile in USG evaluation of fetal well-being at term. Oligohydramnios is define as AFI <5 cm, AF assessment at 37-42 gestational weeks. Study was directed to watch the effect of oligohydramnios in perinatal morbidities and mortality and maternal outcome in form of mode of delivery after 34 weeks of gestation. The rate of LSCS was 55%. 52% had low birth weight, 32% were premature. Out of all patients 8% had transient tachypnea of newborn, 7% had meconium aspiration syndrome, 6% had respiratory distress syndrome, 5% had sepsis. NICU admissions were 52% and no perinatal deaths. The present study recommends that pregnant patients diagnosed with oligohydramnios are at a higher risk of C/S and NICU admission.
