Week 26 to 27+: Better understanding on (P)PROM

 

Ever since my last post on my situation, I have come to understand more about this medical condition – Premature Rupture of Membranes (PROM) or rightly put – mine should be Pre-term Premature Rupture of Membranes (PPROM).

PROM refers to the premature rupture of membranes after 37 weeks whereas PPROM refers to the premature rupture of membranes any time before 37 weeks. Evidently PPROM posed a higher risk, depending on the gestation age of your baby when it happens. The earlier PPROM occurs in a pregnancy. the greater the risk.

 

A search on the internet will reveal much information on PROM and PPROM. However, this is one of the best websites I’ve found both informative and encouraging – (P)PROM. It is actually a good website providing not just information, but a support group for (P)PROM QUEENS! (don’t you love the name given to us? 🙂 )

From this website, you can also find a facebook page specially set up for (P)PROM Mums and Dads.

Both the website and facebook page provided many similar stories on (P)PROM cases and what happened to their babies eventually. I found this extremely useful and encouraging especially for first-time (P)PROM parents-to-be.

 

Loved the way many stories are written – full of hope and anticipation of miracles. 🙂 Read a few for inspiration! 🙂
