Non-traditional start of childbirth
As a rule, they begin with fights, which gradually increase. Further between them the interval is shortened.
But sometimes the onset of labor can be atypical. In a number of cases, in the future mother, amniotic fluid first flows. They represent the environment in which the fetus develops within the mother's womb. The amniotic fluid is found in the membranes of the fetus, which together with the placenta is the barrier protecting the unborn child. This fluid throughout the entire pregnancy allows the fetus to develop under sterile conditions. The amniotic fluid is normally poured out at the first stage of labor, that is, before the cervix is ??opened by 4 centimeters. This happens at the height of one of the fights. Their outflow before the onset of labor is called prenatal or premature. Often the early outflow of water occurs in the women who are repeatedly born. This process is not accompanied by pain, discomfort, or other unpleasant sensations.
If the water is poured prematurely, the fetal bladder can rupture over the cervix. In this case, they flow out slowly. But sometimes it is torn directly above the opening of the cervix. In this case, the waters leave quickly and in large quantities, as they say, as from a bucket.
When the rupture of the fetal bladder occurs high, it can be difficult to determine whether it is water or the mucous plug comes off. Both those and other excretions are similar. It is difficult to distinguish a first-woman woman.
So how do you know if it's water or a cork? The last one leaves for 1-5 days prior to the beginning of delivery. It can be beige, pinkish color. Sometimes it contains veins of blood. The cork can go piecemeal, sometimes several days in a row. Thus allocation at a coughing, sneezing, squats do not amplify.
As for amniotic fluid, they are transparent and watery. There are yellowish. They flow constantly, and with coughing and sneezing, the discharge intensifies. After the outflow of water, the generic process develops within a few hours.
It is worth noting that the version of genera that begins with the outflow of water is more risky and unsafe. After all, in fact, the fruit remains unprotected. It can penetrate bacteria from the cervix and vagina. Childbirth should occur 12 hours after the rupture of the bladder, not later than! Then complications and risks for the baby will be avoided.
If childbirth begins with the outflow of water, then the woman must definitely notify, when this happened, quickly call her husband or call an "ambulance" to get to the maternity hospital as soon as possible. Do not wait for fights!
Also, when you leave the waters, you need to pay attention to their color. If they are normal, that is, odorless, transparent, liquid, then you can get to the hospital yourself.
The woman in the car must lie on her side, not on her back! This posture slows down the labor activity a little and helps to prevent the umbilical cord from squeezing when the loops fall out. This sometimes occurs with a premature outflow of water and is a complication of the generic process. Also, the pose on the side helps to provide the fetus with the necessary amount of oxygen.
What is forbidden to do with water spills
In no case can they stay at home when they go away, as the risk of infection and hypoxia of the fetus increases. Its head is inserted into the uterine cavity and can sometimes press the umbilical cord.
It is also forbidden to take hygienic procedures. This increases the risk of infection. You can not do an enema, shaving. To consume food is also prohibited, because with the waters that have passed away, the need for operative delivery with anesthesia occurs more often.
The ban on food intake and hygiene procedures is also associated with the fact that they take time. And with the departure of the waters, the expectant mother should as soon as possible get to the maternity hospital. Also it is forbidden to be nervous and panic. We must calm down, tune in to hard work and keep a good mood.
