About this resource

When your waters break after 37 weeks and before labour begins
What is this leaflet about?
Sometimes a woman’s waters break before labour starts, this is known as pre-labour rupture of the membranes (or PROM). When this happens, about six out of 10 women will go into labour naturally within 24 hours. This leaflet explains what will happen if you do not go into labour naturally and your labour has to be induced.
