Thanks for the query.
Usually in case of asymmetrical IUGR the initial development of the organs won't affect and only further growth will be affected.
These children are having higher survival rates.
You go for bed rest preferably in left lateral position, take nutritious diet, maintain blood pressure, weight etc. within normal levels.
These can help in improving the baby's growth. Frequent antenatal checkups and ultrasound examinations are needed to monitor the baby growth.

Take care.
