Premature rupture of membranes (PROM) is one of the most common pathological conditions found in pregnancy. PROM may cause various complications for both mother and baby. Previous studies found that PROM is a multifactorial disease. Thus, this study aims to identify the characteristics of subjects with PROM in Sanglah General Hospital. This observational retrospective descriptive study involved all pregnant women with PROM who labored at Sanglah General Hospital from 1 January 2018 until 31 December 2019. PROM is defined as the rupture of amniotic membranes without sign of labor within one hour after the rupture of amniotic membranes. The characteristics included in this study were age, parity, PROM duration, PROM risk factors, type of labor, the indication of cesarean section, neonatal birth weight, maternal and perinatal morbidities, and types of neonatal. There were 254 (15.02%) pregnant women with PROM. Most of the PROM cases found was term PROM (75.6%) and was primigravida woman (41.3%). The highest incidence of PROM was found in the 21-34 years age group (74.4%). The majority of PROM cases in this study had PROM duration less than12 hours (94.9%), idiopathic (81.9%), vaginal delivery (51.6%), and no maternal morbidities (94.0%). Most neonates born to mothers with PROM in this study had no perinatal morbidities (94.0%) and had neonatal care in a regular ward (94.4%).
