Welcome to icliniq.com.

Is there any other reason why your doctor wants you to get admitted. If everything is normal with you and your baby, then we can safely wait till 40 weeks of pregnancy before taking a call for labor. There multiple factors like,

1. Whether the head of the baby has entered the pelvis (engaged head).

2. If your pelvis is roomy enough to accommodate the baby’s head.

3. Any associated medical problems in you?

All these are few factors which help us decide whether you can have a normal delivery.
