When should you go to hospital?

When should you go to hospital?

Phone your midwife and she will be able to tell you whether to go to hospital yet, depending on the type of pain you have and how far apart your contractions are. Once the waters break, the baby is no longer protected from infection and the umbilical cord can slide down, which can cause complications during the birth, the midwife will usually tell you to come in when your contractions are five minutes apart.
