Premature Pregnancy

Hello- My baby was born premature- she was born at 28 weeks. All the doctor told me is that I had ruptured membranes. What does this mean, and what causes it?
Also, does this mean when I am ready to have another baby it will be premature as well?

It means that your waters broke before the time. There is a risk of recurrence in the next pregnancy, so you should book as early as possible.
