Scan shows ball-like object. Want to give natural birth. Concerned about baby

I went for a 4d scan and we could see a small ball looking like that could be a cyst or liquid sack at the end of his spine. It looked it belonged to him.
I am very concerned because the baby is now 34 weeks, and that cyst/liquid sack is 2.5cm.

I want to give natural birth and I don't know how it could affect my decision.

Please help.

Thanks for writing to us.
A small sac of 2.5 cm at the end of the spine in a child is not likely to interfere with the process of normal birth. A caesarean section is not required in such cases. This is likely to be a spinal cord defect and needs further evaluation.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
