    The pregnant mummy has been diagnosed that the water birth level is too low.

    The pregnant mummy has been diagnosed that the water birth level is too low.
    The pregnant mummy has been diagnosed that the water birth level is too less.

    Low or less is more suitable for the sentences?

    Re: The pregnant mummy has been diagnosed that the water birth level is too low.

    If she's pregnant and it's her first child, she's not yet a "mummy". I don't know what a "water birth level" is. However, I will use the term as it appears in your original until/unless someone corrects it.

    The pregnant lady has been told that the water birth level is too low.
    The pregnant lady has been diagnosed with low water birth level.

    "Less" is definitely incorrect. That's a comparative. You need an adjective.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I'll ask my wife, who's an OB-GYN surgeon, but in all the time I have known her I haven't heard this.

    "Water birth level" is not the usual term. The mother-to-be may have been told that she has a "low water level." This refers to the amount of amniotic fluid in the uterus.

    Not an obstetrician.

    I thought it might be related to this thread, but the word 'diagnosed' makes this unlikely.

    I would not use "mummy" in that sentence. It suggests a dead person wrapped in bandages.
