Hi, Thanks for using healthcaremagic. S/D ratio means a ratio of systolic/diastolic velocity of the blood flow in your artery. S/D ratio above 2.5 is normal so if you have it at 3 it is normal. The sachets are normal supplements which will help growth of the baby. As per the doppler report there is no problem to the baby and you should not worry. Hope it sorts your problem.
