Anomaly scan during pregnancy shows notching. Solution for a full term healthy pregnancy?

hi I am 29 week 4 days pregnant. In her anamoly scan report (done 1 days back) the development of fetus is absolutely normal. But one of the summary indicates notch in left uterine artery shows raised RI and persistent diastolic notch and right artery is NORMAL. Today BP readings were normal 120/70. I have following queries: 1. Can you please suggest the precautions we need to take to ensure notching is resolved. 2. What can be done to ensure a full-term healthy pregnancy?

Thanks for writing to us.
The notching in the uterine artery cannot be resolved with any dietary changes or medications. To have a healthy full term pregnancy, you need to have healthy diet rich in iron and calcium with plenty of green leafy vegetables.
