PROM is an obstetric condition which is poorly defined, with an obscure aetiology, difficult to diagnose and is associated with significant maternal and Neonatal morbidity and mortality and management strategies that are often diverse and controversial.
Methodology: The prospective observational study was carried in the Obstetrics and Gynaecology wards of LTMMC & GH, Mumbai from 2017 to June 2018.
Results: Febrile illness was most commonly seen in (i.e.19%), followed by puerperal sepsis 3%. There was no maternal mortality in the study. Total 30 newborn were admitted in NICU for the various morbidities. Birth asphyxia was the commonest cause for perinatal morbidity noticed in 17.0%.
Conclusion: Pregnancies complicated with PROM should have supervised labour preferably in an institution. Management of each case has to be individualised. A combined effort of obstetrician and neonatologist is necessary
