Welcome to ehealthforum.
Do not worry about babyâs head floating (unless baby is big or in breech or transverse lie, or unless you have had pregnancy complications like diabetes). Few women have the 'engagement' of babyâs head just before going into labor, or even after getting started with labor pains. A trial of vaginal birth can and should be given to see if you progress for vaginal delivery (if there are no contraindications). Normal term gestation is upto 40 weeks. Delivery can occur anytime after 37 weeks gestation and the baby is considered matured after completion of 37 weeks gestation. Pregnancy going on for more than 40 weeks is termed as post-term, and requires further intervention. You can consider taking second opinion about it from another gynecologist. Most often, the cesarean section is needed when there are either maternal or fetal complications. The common indications for elective C-section include: previous c-section, maternal heart problems, prolonged labor compromising baby or causing distress in baby, big baby having cephalic-pelvic disproportion, pelvis related problems, breech or transverse lie of baby, genital herpes in mother, multiple pregnancy, placenta previa, failure of progress of labor, cervical dystocia, etc. Discuss about options of vaginal delivery and trial for vaginal delivery once you start with labor (as it is the natural way of childbirth), as well as the indications why the gynecologist is suggesting or advising C-section. Proceed with further management as indicated.
