  • Just head to the hospital, you can have someone call ahead to say you are on the way

  • does it always mean you're going INTO labor, or can a woman's water break without going into labor?

  • it can break and you not go into labor but you still need to go to the hospital. as soon as it happens. Mine broke at 34wks and they kept him in e for 3 days then took him by c-sec. but it doesnt haveto end like that i had othereason why it had to be a c-sec.

  • You can have PPROM (premature rupture of membranes) at any time. Once your water breaks, there's a risk of infection getting in to the baby, so you need to go to the hospital.
