#1: midwife broke it at 10cm because they lost her heartbeat and insisted on an internal monitor (hospital birth). She was born less than 10 minutes later. My midwife thinks she would have been born in the caul otherwise.

#2: pretty sure it broke 2 days before labor started, but it was just a constant trickle, not a big gush. No confirmation of this, though no one could identify a time during labor that it broke.

#3: broke seconds before she was born as I pushed her out.

With both boys, it broke as they were crowning.

With David they broke it at the hospital. With Katelynn it broke on its own. I had an odd feeling going to bed that night that Katelynn would join us the next day. I thought I was dreaming but I wasnt of course lol.

Mine broke about an hour before labour. I felt it snap when I went to the restroom, but I wasn't quite sure what it was, and it flooded the chair when I stood up to put the phone on the hook. Then I was sure

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.

ds1 had AROM after 15 hours in labor doing just fine.

ds2 broke on it's own 2 hours before contractions started.

With my first, my water breaking is what started my labor. With my second, her head fully came out and I guess it must have broke when her body came out. It's hard to tell because she was a water birth, but I remember feeling the sac as she crowned but we pulled it off of her and she came up out of the water.

Mine always breaks before labor starts. I know I actually heard a pop noise with at least 2 of them.

My MW broke mine when I was 9.5cm w/ lips that wouldn't move.

With Nola she ruptured it right as I was pushing her out.

I had a small leak with Reid before labor kicked in but the rest of the water didn't break until moments before birth, as in water breaks, 30 second later baby

First 2, inductions, they broke my water for me.
3rd, I refused. 3rd and 4th it broke right around transition.
5th, it broke 36 hours before my first contractions. (homebirth) I have a feeling it was related to membrane stripping and excessive cervical checks. (I did it myself, darn impatience.) Wont be doing that again.
We shall see this time.
