If your client SROMs, is there a timeline imposed for delivery?
Is the risk for infection very high in the absence of VE's?
Thanks for your input.

Most moms go into labor within 24-48 hours of SROM. I do births at home so I do usually individualize care. I think about: are there signs of labor, has she been "gearing up" before this, have her monitor her temp and pulse rate, take an immune enhancing supplement or herbs, follow the nothing in yoni (vagina) protocol. She can cuddle and kiss and do nipple stimulation.
