Dear,thanks for query.Normally as the pregnancy advances near term the baby`s head engages in the pelvis of mother.This is a sign of progression of delivery.If the due to some reason baby`s head does not go down there are chances of the cord that is connecting mother and baby to get entangled around baby`s neck and leads to complications.So it is better to go for c section as per advise.Still if you have doubts you can take a second opinion.bye and all the best.
