The classification of oligohydramnios based on its severity is as follows:

Mild
AFI between 6 and 7.
Moderate
API between 4 and 5.

It should be noted that there are variations in this classification depending on the specialist. In addition, it is also necessary to assess other parameters, such as blood pressure, to make an accurate diagnosis of oligohydramnios.
