  • I don't remember from my first how far I was dilated when they broke my water... On my last son, I was a six moving further but slowly.. then my blood pressure started dropping so they needed to help me along before it got too low...

  • With my first one, it broke on it's own, and I was about 7 cm when it happened. With my second one, they broke it for me, and I was 9 cm dilated when they did it.

  • I was complete and pushing when my midwife broke my water.

  • If I wasn't over three then it wasn't broken. I think four or five. They flat out said they wouldn't break the water until i was over three cm.

  • I was at 6cm and labor was going slowly so they did it so speed it up :) My friend had hers broke for her when she was 4cm for the same reason.
