Giving birth: When to call your health care provider
Call your health care provider or midwife if:
- your water breaks (gush or trickle of fluid)
- you are bleeding from the vagina more than just spotting
- you have constant, severe pain with no relief between contractions (Call your health care provider of midwife right away.)
- your contractions are five minutes or less apart and have been that way for at least one hour or if your contractions become longer, stronger and closer together
- you have a temperature of more than 100.4 F
- you have any problems you know or think are related to your pregnancy
- you notice a decrease in your baby's activity.
Call your health care provider or midwife any time you are worried about yourself or your baby's well-being.
