Brief Answer:
Caesarean section is must

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.

One who is handicapped with legs, have any orthopaedic problem in legs or neurological weakness in legs, then in these cases, normal delivery is not possible as proper positioning of legs is must for normal delivery.

In such cases, caesarean section has to be done for the delivery of the baby.
Your doctor's advice should be followed.

Hope you found the answer helpful.
