Thanks for the query.

Sometimes fall can cause oligohydromnios in conditions like,
-When it causes any damage to membranes, the amniotic fluid can leak. Sometimes that can cease after sometime or the leak can continue chronically both the conditions can cause oligohydromnios.
-Fall can affect the blood supply of part of the placenta leading placental sufficiency which can affect the production of liquor.

These causes can be ruled out by speculum examination and ultrasound examination.
Depending on the severity of oligohydromnios treatment to be taken.
