  • As long as her Dr says it's Ok it's fine and may even help kick start labor. Its unsafe after your water has broken.

  • i know this is a dumb question, but is it just grems is why its unsafe to have sex after your water borke? cause when i was 36 weeks with my daughter, i didnt know my water broke (it broke a small hole up toward my chest so it wasnt a gushing thing) but we were still having sex to try and speed things up, and well, it totally worked for us! although very akward, but it worked 100%! then found out my water had been broke for 2 days... people looked at me like i was crazy for not knowing but it was just a super slow trickle i guess you could say.

  • The sack is exposed and can cause an infection, which is why they tell you to go to the hospital when your water breaks. An infection can start and cause the baby to had heart rate issues.
