INFORMATION FOR WOMEN WHO HAVE CHORIOAMNIONITIS DURING PREGNANCY OR BREASTFEEDING

 

What is chorioamnionitis during pregnancy?

Chorioamnionitis also called an intraamniotic infection (IAI) or Intrauterine Infection and/or Inflammation (“Triple-I”), is inflammation of the fetal membranes, usually because of a bacterial infection. The fetal membranes consist of an outer membrane called the chorion, and an inner membrane called the amnion, which encloses the amniotic sac, contains clear, pale to yellow fluid called amniotic fluid, which supports and protects the fetus.
