Pregnancy and Signs of Labor
When Should I Call My Health Care Provider or Go to the Hospital?
When you suspect you are in true labor, call your health care provider. Also, call:
- If you think your water has broken
- If you are bleeding (more than spotting)
- If the baby seems to be moving less than normal
- When your contractions are very uncomfortable and have been coming every five minutes for an hour
Your health care provider will give you specific guidelines about when you should get ready to come to the hospital.
