Suggest me also what can be done

Revauthi Rajamani

Hi mommy
This should happen naturally by this time. If not ur doctor will plan for a c section. Follow ur doctor's advise

Neha Mani Mishra

Please don't worry dear. It is a natural process and cannot be predicted. Also trust your doctor to do what is best for you and the baby

Ritu Singhal

Sometimes during labour,baby drops,so it's unpredictable. See,wait until 40 weeks for labour to start itself,if nothing happens,then go for c-sec.
