Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
The fundal position of the placenta and a grade II maturity is a normal finding.
This is not an indication of cesarean section. If you have had a previous c- section then your chances of having a C-section again in this pregnancy are higher.
But you can have a normal delivery too if the ripening of your cervix goes well.
Your gynecologist can assess your chances of having a normal delivery after a careful XXXXXXX examination.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
