Premature Rupture of Membranes (PROM)

severe-ne-5jun16

We, of the NC Triad, may just get some severe weather this evening, along with the rest of the east coast.

Why do I mention this?
Because rapidly falling barometric pressure could potentially break your bag of fluids if you are close to 40 weeks.

If your baby and your body are not ready for labor, this is called Premature Rupture of Membranes (PROM).

And this sets you up for a difficult and long labor.
So??? What to do???
I suggest drink, drink, drink that water.
If it is not dangerous, get into water where the pressure can be equalized.
At very least, lie down so that you are taking gravity out of the picture.

And if your water breaks…then you take it one step at the time.

This is a great article about PROM from Rebecca Dekker of Evidence Based Birth
