This next birth story is one that is close to me, my good friend Megan and I were pregnant at the same time. Our due dates were less than a month apart and it was exciting to have a friend who was entering motherhood at the same time.
Megan's water broke before the onset of labor, which is called premature rupture of membranes (PROM). This is how we all think labor starts because of what we see in movies and on television. However, only about 8-10% of women experience their waters breaking before labor begins.
Megan's second baby is due any day now. Please send positive thoughts her way!
