A woman's water breaking doesn't mean that the baby will come quicker. Labor can still last for hours, maybe even a day, after her water breaks. That has no definite correlation with the baby being delivered.

When a woman says her water broke, it signals the start of labour, however, as noted above, it doesn't necessarily mean that the baby will come quicker- just that it's started the process leading to being born.

The 'waters' is actually a fluid known as the amniotic sac that the baby develops in, inside the womb. This usually breaks just before or during labour. For more information on labour, feel free to check out this.

Hope this helps
