Is it healthy if your doctor wants to do a c-section in your 38th week of pregnancy?

I would say trust your doctor. He/she can not do anything that

would harm either of you. If the doctor does you then have a

malpractice suit. It depends on his reasoning. Although the baby is

considered full-term it is best to let them come when they are

ready. Most doctors will wait until 39 weeks to do a c-section.

Then there is the question of if you really even need a c-section.

It might not harm you but it also might not be medically
