When a woman’s uterus ruptures during pregnancy or the delivery of a baby, the consequences can be catastrophic for the mother and the child. That’s why it’s critical that medical professionals carefully monitor a woman’s health and take immediate action if they see warning signs that a rupture may occur in the woman’s uterus.
