When a fetus bathes in too much amniotic fluid there is a risk that the amniotic sac may rupture or that the mother may develop labor pains due to stretching of the uterus. The mother feels her abdomen to be grossly distended and in some cases develops colicky pain.

In such cases we introduce a fine needle into the amniotic cavity and withdraw a measured amount of amniotic fluid. As the needle itself makes a hole in the amniotic sac, the advantages of such procedures must be carefully weighed against the disadvantages.
