"My wife's waters went at 28 weeks"

About: King's Mill Hospital / Maternity care

(as a relative),

Quick question: why has my wife been left for 3 days with a infection with no waters and a baby inside her?

She is now 33 weeks pregnant. She developed this infection after her fluids around the baby had dropped below 4 and was kept in hospital. We was told by our consultant that if she got an infection or the fluids around the baby would drop below 4 she would have to be started off in labour in an emergency because of this.

So I'll ask again why has she been waiting for 3 days with an infection which could be very dangerous for our baby?
