It can happen like that (above)~ from the contractions, or some believe from baby scratching or a weak spot in the sac. Rarely, it happens well before a mom is laboring, sometimes it happens early, middle, late in labor, or never at all. (A baby can be born in the sac, intact.)
There are low ruptures (more of a gush, sometimes sporadic as baby's head acts like a cork)), there are high leaks (might be more of a consistent trickle), and a tear through just one layer (maybe one gush and then done).
A tear can reseal in pregnancy, so breaking of water doesn't always mean that labor is inevitable. And sometimes the water can break without labor starting (no contractions), as well.
