To the idiotic water breaking post...

"Pneumonia in the early neonatal period usually occurs in cases where membranes rupture more than 6 hours before delivery, who were the products of prolonged and complicated labors, or in premature infants. Details of treatment to be instituted in newborn infants demonstrating signs indicative of pneumonia are discussed. The authors suggest that pneumonia is a sole cause of death in 6 to 9 per cent of all stillborn or newborn infants."

A girl I know just had to bury her 5 day old baby because the doctors let her go too long after her water broke before they delivered the baby and he ended up with pneumonia which they did not catch before it was too late. DO NOT LISTEN to that stupid meme. It's not worth it. Keep your baby safe.

There are a lot of different infections that can happen...

Plus, the more fluid you lose, the easier it is for a cord strangulation.



It's just not a good idea, Even with I worked with a midwife, by law they had to go to the hospital if their labor went past 24 hours after their water breaking.

I still say listen to your body and do what feels right for you.  If a woman feels she can wait at home for a while, then that is what is right for her.

You are never, ever going to be able to end every stillborn or newborn death.  All the precautions in the world won't end it.  Therefore one woman's sad story is no basis for what every other woman should do with their own pregnancy.

My water broke and a half an hour later, my kiddo was here. Taking medical advice from memes is beyond absurd.

She should not shut up at all...

That post gave advice that could end up killing a baby or the mother, or both....

But why would you even risk it knowing it's even a possibility? My baby means a lot more to me than that I guess.

Hopefully no one will take that meme worthy of consideration. Everything in it was completely false. It’s so dangerous to spread such ignorant misinformation. This isn’t about suggesting a cereal brand, these are people’s health and life she could be messing with by spreading that nonsense.

 Same here with 3 of my 4 kids. The water broke and within 30 minutes I was holding a baby.

Same with my mom, my aunts, my grandmother and her sisters.. If I had waited, my husband would have been delivering our child.
