What is a diastolic notch in an ultrasound during pregnancy?

Q: My pregnant wife recently had an ultrasound scan and the report was found normal except it talks about the bilateral early diastolic notch. Could you tell me about this term? I want to know more about it. What are the implications of less blood supply and how can it be normalised/corrected?

A:In a 6 month pregnancy if you are having early diastolic notch, it means that the early intra-uterine growth retardation (IUGR) is setting in. It shows either you have BP problem or your nutrition is not sufficient or you are not taking proper rest. Please get your BP checked regularly and take 8-10 hours rest at night and 2 hours rest during the day preferably on your left side. This will improve your blood circulation by 40%.
