COSTA, M. da C. et al. Gestación de riesgo: percepción y sentimientos de las mujeres embarazadas con amniorrexe prematuro. Enferm. glob. [online]. 2010, n.20. ISSN 1695-6141.

Premature amniorrhexis, risky pregnancy, became a global concern because of the harm to the mother and fetus. Aim to identify the knowledge of women of premature amniorrhexis and get to know their perceptions and their feelings about this pathology. Descriptive study with a qualitative approach, developed in a public maternity ward. 11 women participated while hospitalized with a diagnosis of premature amniorrhexis, in the months of September and October 2007. The collection of semi-structured data was used, from which emerged the categories: Women's knowledge in relation to premature amniorrhexis, requiring information, and their feelings experienced, and reaction before their water broke. The results showed that women know little of the disease, or fear for the life of their children, and do not know what to do before that. Additionally health care professionals should regard women as human beings that need support and understanding.
