  • Mine broke by itself in the Hospital. The nurse said that the Dr. will be in shortly to break it and them BAM it broke and gushed right then. The nurse cracked up.

  • Mine was broken all three times in the hospital by the doctor/midwife. The last time they didn't break it until the last minute and his head blocked the water from coming out, so the midwife tried to push his head back up so the water could come out. OUCH! And it didn't work. He came out head to toe with one big gush of water. She had to change her clothes it was such a big splash.

    I learned with my first that the bag of water decreases the pains of the contractions. So I made sure to tell them that I didn't want it broken early.
