A Hertfordshire mother whose waters broke at just 16 weeks into her second pregnancy has beaten the odds of less than 1%, to go on and have a healthy baby.
35-year-old Katy Evans was advised that she would go into labour within a week and that her only option was to have a termination, but she decided to let nature take its course.
Two weeks later she had a scan which showed her waters had replenished and her baby was okay.
Katy researched online about " Pre-term premature rupture of the membranes" and found that there was a slim chance of being able to carry her baby to full term.
Katy then went on to have a normal pregnancy and carried Leo until she was 33 weeks.
Katy now hopes more research is carried out into PPROM and that the current statistics being used by Doctors in the UK, are updated.
She hopes it will lead to women being more informed about what is happening to them.
