HI,
My waters broke just at about 28 &  a half weeks. I have been hospitalised on bedrest since... I am now 32 weeks. Could you please tell me what complications we may be faced with when my little girl is eventually delivered... I can' t seem to find too much information about this.
Thanks

Any possible complicationswould depend entirely on how premature your baby is when she is born. The most common problem is immature lungs but this can and will be be treated by the paediatrician.Your baby is getting to the stage where the chances of problems are becoming less by the day and your baby will be treated by a paediatrician at birth so you really must not worry too much.
