Dear,thanks for query.Normally as the pregnancy advances near term the baby`s head engages in the pelvis of mother.This is a sign of progression of delivery.If the due to some reason baby`s head does not go down there are chances of the cord that is connecting mother and baby to get entangled around baby`s neck and leads to complications.So it is better to go for c section as per advise.Still if you have doubts you can take a second opinion.bye and all the best.

I have gestational diabetes and currently at 37 week 4 days. At 36 week, I had ultrasound, and doctor told my baby s weight 6.4 lb which is high at 36 week. Also the baby s head is bigger than what it should be. One more thing, my baby is in vertex position but her back is on my right side. My doctor explained me this is not optimal position for birth. So considering all my situation still should I try for normal delivery, or should I go for c-section?

Hello! I am 35 weeks pregnant. Started itching all over body especially palms and soles. Doctor advised lfts. Alp-210 Sgot -32u/L Sgpt-37U/L The obg suggested close fetal monitoring with ctg n lft repeats and is suspecting obstetric cholestasis. She suggested early labor induction once I complete 37 weeks. I am not vry sure if the diagnosis is not confirmed...do I go ahead with the labour induction & continue monitoring till my due date n wait for normal labour to start? Evrythings perfect with me and I was looking forward to a normal delivery. N I am strictly against c sections and I heard labor inductions in first timers 60% of the times end up in c sections. Please advise! Thnks!
