Thank you for your query.
Potter's syndrome has almost 100 % lethality rate.
You are right, because anyway the baby has almost nil chances of surviving after birth.
You should go for a vaginal delivery and induction after consultation with your obstetrician, as there are various forms of Potter's syndrome with varying severity, best assessed by your doctor.
take care.
