Warning Signs

Do not hesitate to contact us or the Labour Ward staff in the event of any of the following :

  • Any bleeding from the vagina. If it is 20 cent size on a pad at 2am, phone in the morning. If it is running down your leg, go to the hospital and they will contact your doctor.
  • Rupture of the membranes – usually a clear watery persistent discharge. It can be very hard to tell if you have or have not ruptured your membranes but it is important to know about it as early as possible.
  • Any pain which is persistent or unresponsive to Panadeine and a nice warm bath.
  • Any sudden decrease in the baby’s movements. In this case, rest quietly and feel for movements for thirty minutes. If less than three are felt in this time, contact the labour ward staff.
