  • Your doctor will only break your water if you are in the hospital. They do not do this in the office.

  • They will only break your water if they need you to deliver, and the baby has to be low enough, so that the cord doesn't end up between the cervix and the baby's head.

  • If she breaks your water and your baby isn't ready, then you won't go into labor and will end up with a c-section and most likely a baby that is born too early.

  • I would wait it out. Asking your Dr to break your water is asking for an induction and possibly a c-section. They will only "let" you go so long without slicing you open after they break your water. Think your in pain now... wait until you havw to heal from major abdominal surgery.....

    Go get a massage and try to enjy these last few weeks!
