What is Chorioamnionitis?

Chorioamnionitis is a pregnancy condition where the tissues and fluid around the fetus (unborn baby) become infected. This typically occurs in labor after the water bag (amniotic sac) is broken, but can occur before this as well. This is a serious condition that requires delivery of the fetus to protect both the mother and the baby.

Typical Symptoms of Chorioamnionitis

  • Currently pregnant

  • Feel my child is moving less. (Decreased fetal movements)

  • Feel like water has broken/amniotic fluid is coming out

  • Fever

  • Stomach feels constantly hard and stiff like a board

  • Tachycardia

  • Increased vaginal discharge that is smelly

  • Labor-like pain (repeated tummy/abdominal pain) in cycles of 10 minutes or less

Doctor's Diagnostic Questionson Chorioamnionitis

  • Are you pregnant?

  • Is your child moving less?

  • Do you feel like your water has broken?

  • Do you have a fever?

  • Is your stomach always hard and stiff like a board?

Treatmentof Chorioamnionitis
