1st pregnancy preterm, what extra care for 2nd?

May 15th, 2016, 22:14 PM   #1
Hi All,

My son was born at 33 + 2 due to PPROM - a total surprise why he was early and no explanation has ever been found out.

What extra care did you get in subsequent pregnancies?

Thank you!!! X

My first wasn't quite so early. He was born at 36 weeks with spontaneous labour.

Him being preterm was not a factor in my second pregnancy at all. They just said that they would monitor but if baby wanted to come he would come

I imagine you’d get standard care in subsequent pregnancies. If you don’t rupture your membranes early again there are no obvious risk factors.
