Hi, Mohini,
Thanks for query.
as you have got head up in the uterus and amniotic fluid level is just 5 then one can not wait till full term and Caesarian Section is a must.
I would suggest to admit and carefully observe the sign of fetal distress and go for planned C.S.
Ok and bye.

OBGYN Dr. Asra Ishtiaq Ahmed's  Response
Hello there..
What you have mentioned is not a very clear history. But wat what i interpret is that you have a breech position wherein head of the baby is up and buttocks are down. In such a case vaginal delivery is risky and most doctors prefer caessarean as there are risks to the baby in vaginal delivery like head injury, nerve injury, aphyxia ( oxygen deficiency to baby) and death.

Vaginal delivery is not contraindicated but it is risky. Choice between delivery and caesarean depends on many factors like weight of the baby,your pelvic space, whether its your first pregnancy( then caesarean preferred as pelvic space is tight) , associated abnormalities in baby, whether term baby or not.

Your gynecologist must have taken all this into account and gave you the decision of surgery. Also your amniotic fluid is less (ie water around the baby) which would further complicate if you try for a vaginal delivery.

If your baby is healthy with no congenital malformations then you should better opt for caesarean section.
