PPROM is the acronym for Preterm Prelabour Rupture Of Membranes.
This is otherwise known as when the waters break prior to 37 weeks during pregnancy.
These waters, known as the amniotic fluid, protect your baby from injury. It also helps in preventing infection being passed from mother to baby. As soon as the waters break the risks of infection to both mother and baby are high. Therefore good management of care at this stage is key to treating this condition successfully.
Little Heartbeats is the leading charity in the UK to highlight the dangers and complexities around PPROM.
