A Unborn baby with water on the brain

Good day

Will you please explain to me what does it mean when a doctor
tells you your unborn baby has water on the brain. And what can be done to resolve the problem.

Thank you

Dear Zone
It seems this reply did not load on the page. Water on the brain means that one of the chambers of the brain normally filled with fluid becomes enlarged and this can cause pressure on the brain. They usually put a shunt - a small tube - into the brain to drain the excess fluid.
