Hi Maria,

The term is called Oligohydramnios when the amniotic fluid is less. There are amino acid infusions that can be given in antenatal period to increase the amniotic fluid per se. Astymin is one such drug that can help you.

Yes, your baby will survive and most probably, it should not have any problem.

I hope this helps.

All the best.
