67. There is no difference!
When your water "breaks" there is rarely a "gush". Most often, it is a leak. Every woman who has been pregnant knows that the correct response is to proceed to the hospital so you can be examined. If you are close enough to your due date, you will be admitted. If you are far from your due date it is even more serious and you will be admitted.

Surely the correct response cannot be "Let me give my speech in a few hours then board a flight for eight hours with a layover in Seattle and a further drive to another hospital". It makes no sense.

My water broke with my first child and I was immediately admitted, even though I was having no contractions. There is a danger of infection if there is too much of a delay.
