A 52-year-old member asked:
It looks like my water broke last night at 32 weeks. Does that mean that labor is imminent?

Dr. Amy Herold answered
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
No: When your water breaks early, before 34-35 weeks, you will be given medication to stop labor. Unless there is an infection present, in which case it is better to deliver the baby, you may be able to stay pregnant until 34-36 weeks. Labor is allowed to occur or is induced at that point.
