There Are At Least 7 Water Functions For Fetal Membranes

Functions of amniotic fluid are very important for the fetus in the womb. The amount of amniotic fluid is too little or too much, are equally at risk of causing harm to the fetus.

A few days after fertilization, the amniotic sac begins to form and filled with fluid.Initially, the amniotic fluid filled with water, but after about 10 weeks of gestation, the amniotic fluid will also be filled with urine from the fetus.

Functions of amniotic fluid are very important for the fetus in the womb, among others:

  • Protects from impact

Amniotic fluid will maintain the condition of the baby remains safe by absorbing impact or pressure from outside. In addition, the amniotic fluid also prevents squeezed umbilical cord providing oxygen and food.

  • preventing infection

Antibodies in the amniotic fluid will help prevent dangerous infections in the fetus.

  • controlling the temperature

Maintaining the condition of the uterus that is warm and comfortable for the fetus during pregnancy is determined by the amniotic fluid. The amniotic fluid would prevent the factors that can make the fetus freezing conditions.

  • provide nutrients

At the trial of fetal rabbit, the amniotic fluid is able to provide nutrients to the fetus about 10-14 percent of normal rabbits. Moreover, the content of the amniotic fluid fetal rabbits can also support the development of the digestive tract.

  • The development of the lungs and digestive

By inhaling and swallowing amniotic fluid, fetal trained to use the muscles of the lungs and digestive thus help its development.

  • Supports the development of muscle and bone

Not just floating in amniotic fluid, fetal do a lot of movement in it, so it can support the development of muscle and bone.

  • Prevents growth abnormalities finger

Abnormalities in the fingers are one of the risks due to lack of amniotic fluid.Amniotic fluid as a function of lubrication that helps ensure the growth of the finger perfectly.

Changed Under Age Pregnancy

The composition of the amniotic fluid change according to gestational age. Before 12 weeks gestation , most of the amniotic fluid consists of water with electrolytes. After passing the gestational age, amniotic fluid composition became more widely to support this growth, including protein, carbohydrates, urea, lipids, and phospholipids.

In addition to the composition, as the pregnancy progresses, the volume or amount of amniotic fluid also increases. From a volume of approximately 25 ml at 10 weeks gestation, increased significantly to about 400 ml at 20 weeks gestation. The higher the volume of amniotic fluid of 800 ml experienced at 28 weeks gestation, and at birth, the amniotic fluid could reach 1 liter.

It is important to know whether the amount of amniotic fluid is in conformity with gestational age. The doctor will check the amount of amniotic fluid when doing ultrasound or better known as ultrasound.

Conditions lack or excess of amniotic fluid is equally risky . Deficiency of amniotic fluid (oligohydramnios) or excess amniotic fluid (polyhydramnios) can cause fetal and pregnancy.

Given the importance of the function of amniotic fluid for the fetus, make sure it according to gestational age. Consult a doctor to find out.
