Summary: For adult, pregnant women singleton pregnancies and rupture of membranes before labor between 34 and 37 weeks, with no signs of infection, expectant management may lead to the same rates of neonatal sepsis, morbidity and mortality as immediate delivery, but expectant management may be associated with lower rates of respiratory distress, need for mechanical ventilation, and need for intensive care compared to immediate delivery.
