Thanks for writing to us.
Oligohydramnios- decreased liquor is associated with a fetal growth retardation. You need an active treatment to stop further reduction in the amniotic fluid volume and then get the baby delivered as soon as the lungs are mature- at 36-37 weeks.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
