About The PROM Page

This is a copy of the (P)PROM Page, a new page is under construction. v2.1 /Inkan July 12, 2011

(Preterm) Premature Rupture Of Membranes

PROM: The amniotic sac breaks ("the water breaks") prior to the onset of labor.
PPROM: If the amniotic sac breaks prior to the onset of labor contractions
and before the 38th week of gestation.

What is the reason for your visit to the PROM Page?

  • Did your water just break?
    Find information, action list and support at the "New to PROM" section.

  • Are you at risk of delivering prematurely?
    If you have experienced a PROM and expect your baby or babies to spend time in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) or special baby care unit (SBCU) after delivery, "Preparing for a PROM Preemie" is for you.

  • Have you been told you should terminate your pregnancy?
    Find information and support at the "Preparing for a perinatal loss" section.

  • Are you a PROM Queen in need of support?
    Join the PROM mailing list or the Facebook (P)PROM support group to meet other women who have experienced PROM.

  • Are you Pregnant After Prom (PAP), or thinking of trying again?
    Learn from other moms' experiences at the "Pregnant After PROM" section.

Hopefully this page can be of some help in the research of finding what causes PPROM, and how to prevent it from happening, or happening again - if it is possible. Here you can read many PROM stories and find information on different situations around PROM, given from women who have experienced PROM. This information page is deliberately built upon the belief that there is a chance of a successful outcome, and that knowledge can help or prevent future PROM babies.
Between countries, hospitals, and doctors treatment or management of PROM are handled differently. Bedrest? Antibiotics? Induction? We are each given different information about our chances for a successful outcome. Very few have found the answer as to why their PROM happened. What is the truth? Becoming pregnant after prom (PAP), brings up many more questions.
Join the PROM mailing list or the Facebook PPROM support group to get support from other PROM moms.
Note: PPROM and PROM are mostly called "PROM" at these pages.
