When I was 39w4d, my water broke and I had to immediately go to the midwifery for hookup on penicillin due to GBS.
26hrs later, I wasn't into active labor, and needed a hospital transfer (state midwifery laws, I think we really only had 24 hours but I kinda pushed it a bit). I was hooked on Pitocin and it was pretty hellish.
I was wondering what causes water to break before active labor and is there any way to "prevent" it?
