Thanks for the query.
Obviously her condition is not stable.The herniation of membranes means there is always a chance of pre term labour. Whether she can visit the washroom is a relative matter.The doctor treating her would be able to advise best after examination.If there is no pain,bleeding,leaking etc, then there is no harm in going to the wash room.
However, if any of the above symptoms are present,then complete bed rest is necessary.She should not strain in the toilet. Also avoid squatting for long periods of time. However,i still say,that follow the advise of her treating doctor since he has examined the pt himself.
