PROM and PPROM
PROM or Premature rupture of membranes is a condition occurring in pregnancy in which the membranes in the amniotic sac and chorion rupture more than one hour before the onset of labor. When this rupture occurs before 37 weeks gestation, it is known as pre-term premature rupture of membranes or PPROM.
PPROM is significantly more dangerous, however, both conditions can have a negative effect on the baby. It usually brought on by infection and, when it occurs, it is necessary that the mother receives treatment to avoid possible harm to the child.
