Should I be concerned about amniotic fluid leak?

My amniotic fluid is leaking.


Answer by  Rose (6804)

Amniotic fluid should not leak and could be an indication that labor is near. Make sure you consult with your doctor.

You should be concerned enough to solicit the advice of your medical professional (OB or midwife). If they tell you it is ok, then don't worry. There are problems that can develop if your baby doesn't have enough amniotic fluid, so it is important to know if it is a little leak or a big leak.

Leakage of amniotic fluid is a serious matter and can be harmful for both - mother and fetus. Please raise foot end of your bed [around 2 bricks high] and lie down in bed till delivery. Consult your obstetrician immediately and follow the advice. If excessive fluid is lost, there can be fetal distress or even intrauterine death of child.

Yes, you should see your doctor right away, especially if you're not close to your due date. The baby is at risk for infection once the amniotic sac ruptures.

yes you should be concerned and see your obstetrician as soon as possible. If your amniotic fluid becomes to low it can affect your growing baby and cause complications. Your doctor may recommend bed rest or if it is severe early delivery.
