Amniotic fluid leaking during Ramadaan

Q) There is a woman who was in her ninth month of pregnancy when Ramadaan came, and at the beginning of the month she was leaking water (i.e., amniotic fluid), but not blood. She was fasting whilst that water was leaking. This happened ten years ago. My question is: does this woman have to make up the fast, noting that she fasted on those days when this water was leaking?


A) Praise be to Allaah.  


If the situation was as you described, then her fast is valid and she does not have to make it up.
