[Solved] 2. What should a woman be aware of if her water breaks before contractions begin?

…1. The woman may slip if her water breaks on a smooth floor
2. The doctor will not be able to test to see if the water has broken
3. If she waits too long, the baby may be at risk for infection
4. Doctors prefer to break the woman’s water in the hospital
The baby lives in the amniotic sac and this protects the baby from the outside world. If the water breaks and the woman does not deliver within a certain period of time (typically around 24 hours), doctors become worried that the baby could develop an infection and prefer to deliver the baby. If contractions do not begin soon enough, the woman may have her labor induced to deliver the baby and prevent infections.

There is no need for a doctor to break the woman’s water unless she isn’t progressing and her water hasn’t broken (it has to break at some point!).

Where the woman is located (smooth surface, carpet…) doesn’t matter if she has contractions or not, beyond the woman being in pain.

Doctors can still test if the woman’s water has broken – there are swabs that can be taken to test for the presence of amniotic fluid.

If she waits too long, the baby may be at risk for infection:
