YES!!! If she is leaking amniotic fluid, and has not had any contractions to actually start the Laboring process, there is an increased risk of infection that can harm her and the baby. My water had broken at 5pm with my son, and by 8pm they decided to induce and put me on antibiotics, because I already had a fever and other signs of infection.

due today... probably having baby today or tomorrow if she is leaking. good luck! call nurse, any contractions? they will check her, if no contractions, they might send her home, if bag breaks they will keep her in hospital. go, but not too early ;)

Call the advise nurse. They will let you know. If she is LEAKING like her water broke then yes she needs to give birth in 24hrs. But if its just mucous and bloody show she can wait for contractions. As always if worried just call the hospital that's what they are there for!
