Petition Ensure RCOG & NICE Guidelines are followed after waters break early in pregnancy

In 2% of pregnancies,waters break early without labour commencing & can prolong from 12wks to 34wks. Medical term is PPROM & associated with 40% pre-term delivery.We are asking that going forward all medical staff to follow the RCOG & NICE Guidelines for Care of Women presenting with suspected PPROM

More details

In 2010, I lost my first child Sinead to PPROM. I was sent home without diagnosis & antibiotics which led to me going into premature labour. Sadly my daughter died and I became very ill. If guidelines on care for women presenting with PPROM had been followed the outcome could have been VERY different.
