This week, we cover the evidence on inducing labor versus waiting for labor to start on its own, when water has broken before the start of labor. For this podcast, we focus on when water breaks at 37 weeks of pregnancy or later. This is also known as pre-labor rupture of membranes, or PROM. 

PROM is a common situation – researchers say that about one in ten pregnant people will have their water break before the onset of labor. Join me as we examine the evidence to see how pregnant people can make the best decisions for themselves when faced with the choice of inducing or waiting.
