waters breaking policy


ive asked this before awhile ago now no-one replied so thought if try again.

hospital i had my youngest in told me there policy on 'your waters' was now they no longer pop them as it isnt good on the 'drop' your babies head has to do, at the time this really annoyed me i was ready to push but waters were still there it was hurting alot more than first labour they refused.

as my youngest head was crowning my waters finally went & what a relief, i was wondering if this new policy is happening anywhere else?

Hmm I'm not sure about policy but when I gave birth they didn't break my waters until I was birthing and I wish they'd done it sooner tbh. I think it's to do with minimising the risk of infection xx

Oh im sorry im not sure about this hun, with my 1st which was 2008 they tried to break my waters for a couple of days when i was being induced and not progressing but eventually they went on there own. I know on the recent Special deliveries on BBC 3 the midwifes were stil breaking ladies water x

Mine never mentioned anything about infection.
It was all to do with the babies head, like there putting yet another worry out there.

Been breaking womens waters for years, this what annoyed me. I got mine broken the first nothing was ever said about it that was in 07. I had my youngest dec 09.

I've never heard of this? Hope it's not a policy here. Surely if a woman in labour says, "please, I want my waters broken" they should oblige within reason. Mine were broken in the later stages of my first labour.
I would like to think that anything I request when I am in labour is fulfilled.

I've never heard of that reason for not breaking them. I thought they broke most peoples by a certain stage of labour
