Squad are you there? Labour question
My little sister has just had her waters break, she says it keeps gushing out and everytime she laughs she leaks, she is getting contractions she says are every 5 minutes from each other, but lasting over a minute each. Her hospital had closed all the wards due to C.Diff, but have told her to call back in 48 hours if the baby's not there yet, she is 20 and quite short and overweight also, I was under the impression that if all the waters had broken (front and hind) that the mother was to be monitered incase of the baby becoming in distress, she also has very high blood pressure and protien in her urine, and had a urine infection starting Friday. What is your advice, she is still munching away on food btw!
