Question: My wife is 38 weeks pregnant and doctor says that there is no dilution even of 1cm. She said next week if there is no labor she will induce labor.
I asked if c-section can be done. She replied if we want then she can do c-section as inducing labor also may not help in dilution.

My question: is there any issue if we go for c-section or should my wife be induced labor and then see?

Kindly help us please.

Brief Answer:
the decision is entirely yours..

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXX, Welcome to HCM,

I've gone through your query and understand your concern..

However in this regard, i completely agree with your Doctor, as this decision is entirely yours..

Since it's a planned thing, if both of you want C-section you can straight away go for C-section..

Trust your doctor, as she must be having ample amount of experience in this regard, so you need to discuss with your wife and simply decide..

Whichever way is suitable for you, just inform your doctor accordingly so that she can take it from there as it's still 38 weeks, so there's time for you to decide..

Take your time, relax, sit down with your wife and talk it through..

My Best Wishes
Happy parenthood..

Take Care
Kind Regards
