hello experts..today morning I had my water break.  consulted my gyno she said , babies head is not engaged yet.we need to undergo C section.. is it fine??? or should I wait for lil more time??plzzz guide me...it's urgent

Dr.Shilpitha Shanthappa pl advise

Sonali Shivlani what are your thoughts

i think she is correct. without water hw normal.dlvry wud b pozble

if baby's head is not engaged,, then its bit difficult to have normal delivery and mean while membranes are ruptured.. if you wait, it may harm baby too.. chances of meckonium aspiration etc are more.. so better to go for c-section..

As expert Dr. Shilpitha said.. better to go for C section and not to risk baby. As baby head is not fixed , it will be very difficult and complicated ,if you wait for normal delivery.

Once the water breaks we do have a short window to deliver the baby. App 24 hours but with close monitoring. Have you experienced labor pains ? At times the baby may engage even after labor pains start. The doctor could consider induction to start the contractions and see if the head engages.
