hi my wife is 30 week 5 days pregnant. In her anamoly scan report (done 2 weeks back) the development of fetus is absolutely normal. But one of the summary indicates 'high resistance flow with early diastolic notch in left uterine artery' and right artery her BP readings were normal 120/80.

Thanks for the query.
1.Let her take rest in lest lateral position, low salt diet, plenty of oral fluids.
Discuss with your doctor whether she needs medicines like vasodilators, arginine sachets etc. and follow her advice.
2.She has to take regular antenatal checkups with ultrasound examination and biophysical profile estimations to detect any abnormality at the earliest possibility.
Sufficient rest, walking, weight management, good diet are needed.
For more details you can ask me through:
Take care.
