Do amniotic sac disorders affect the unborn child?

Amniotic sac disorders may affect the unborn child, or they even may be caused by problems that the fetus is experiencing. If the fetus has any birth defects which have damaged the lungs, kidneys, or urinary tract, this could affect how the amniotic fluid is utilized during the pregnancy. This could then lead to either a build-up or drop in the level of amniotic fluid. If the fetus is developing normally, but an amniotic sac disorder occurs, the fetus could suffer some birth defects if the problem gets serious. It may be necessary to deliver the baby early to prevent any negative effects of an amniotic sac disorder.
