Welcome to HCM
Read your prob, in case of cephalic presentation there is chance of normal delivary. there is no need to ceserian section. you should wait for another 7 to 10 days. most probably pain will be started. then consult with your doc, if pain will not be started then injectable drug is given for pain. do not worry there is more chance of normal delivary.

welcome to health care magic
Cephalic (head-first) presentation:

Cephalic presentation is considered normal and occurs in about 97% of deliveries. There are different types of cephalic presentation, which depend on the fetal attitude.

Rarely, the fetus' head is extended back, and the chin, face, or forehead will present first depending on the degree of extension. This is a more difficult delivery, because this is not the smallest part of the fetus' head. It may result in a need for cesarean delivery.

A cesarean delivery may be recommended for any of the fetal positions other than cephalic.dont worry please follow your gynaecologist advice ,,every thing will be allrite
best of luck
