I don't think so. I think it has to be during labor. My sister is an OBGYN nurse. I will have to ask her tomorrow

Lol it happens in less than one out of every one thousands births, and even less in developed countries because of the tendency for artificial rupture of membranes. It happened by fluke really, I went in to be induced the night before and they were supposed to break my water and start pitocin the next morning but I was already in active labor



So they just forgot and then she came barreling out so quick, they tried to break it as she was crowning, but it was to late

I was positive for GBS for both of my pregnancies, but for both of my pregnancies I went to a regular apoiment and ended up staying and being induce so I had plenty of time to get the antibiotics plus for my first I was in labor for two days and for my second I was in labor for 3 days.

Is that safe or is there risk in that? Or does it just make for a dry birth?

I don't believe there is any risk involved with it, it did make pushing kind of weird, like pushing on a water balloon, every time I pushed, it pushed back. But it did only take five pushes to get her out.



I did have uterine prolapse afterward, which I do wonder if that's the reason why, the doctor said it's not supposedly, but I doubt they've ever even encountered the situation before.
