Re: Water broke!!!

I had that with my daughter. They told me it was quite common in overdue babies. It did mean that the NICU would have to be there and if she wasn't reponsive and crying when born they'd have to take her right away to care for her (in the room still though) and I wouldn't be able to get her on my chest and delay cord clamping. But she was very alert (apgar of 9) and so they just left.
