Objectives: To identify the correlation between parity and premature rupture of membrane (PROM) incidence at Government Maternity Hospital, Tirupati in 2022.
Methods: This is a retrospective observational study conducted in a Tertiary Care Hospital in Andhra Pradesh from May 2022 to July 2022.

The research results showed that most PROM incidences occurred in primipara as many as 72 respondents (8.3%), and those who did not experience PROM occurred in multipara were as many as 777 respondents (28.5%). Chi-Square (X2) statistical test obtained p-value = 0.007 so that it can be concluded that there was a correlation between parity and the incidence of premature rupture of membranes in Tertiary Care Centre in Tirupati from May 2022 to July 2022.
Conclusion: Mothers in Tertiary Care Centre, Tirupati mainly were multipara. There is a relationship between parity with the incidence of premature rupture of membranes in Tertiary Care Centre from May 2022 to July 2022 with p value = 0.007.
