Abstract: 

Background: One of the most important aspects of fetal well being is adequate amniotic fluid volume. This study was conducted To test this hypothesis that maternal oral hydration increases amniotic fluid index in pregnancies complicated by oligohydramnios.
Materials and Methods: A randomized clinical trial was performed in
Mirza Kochek-Khan Hospital. In this study, 44 patients were randomized in two groups. 22 in each of hydration and control groups, in both groups basal studies including amniotic fluid index (AFI) and urine specific gravity were performed. Patients in hydration group were instructed to drink two liter of water in two hours (250 ml every 15 minutes for total of 2 hours). Control group drank their usual amount of water. Two to four hours after completion of hydration, USG and AFI were again measured.
Results: Delta AFI (AFI after treatment- AFI before treatment) increased significantly in hydration group compared with control group (16.4±14 vs 0.36±13.4, P<0.001).
Conclusion: This finding suggests that maternal oral hydration increases amniotic fluid volume. With regard to pregnancy outcome (gestational age at termination, route of delivery [Cls v/s vaginal delivery], and neonatal outcome. No significant statistical difference was noted.
