Small Pelvis And The Position Of The Baby’s Head Can Give Birth Naturally?
Afternoon, I have a question. Last Wednesday I checked the content because it was close to HPL. After being checked by the obstetrician, I said my pelvis was small and the baby’s head positioned upwards. So the doctor decided for an sc operation, my pregnancy was 39 weeks. But my family still insisted for me to go through a normal delivery process. Is it possible for me to give birth normally? And what are the risks if I keep pushing for a normal delivery?
The small pelvis is a complication in carrying out a normal delivery. In order to be able to carry out a normal delivery, several factors are needed, such as good maternal contractions, the size of the baby that is not too big, the position of the baby, a normal birth canal including the width of the pelvis.
The small pelvis can prevent the baby from coming out if a normal delivery is carried out, especially if the baby's head position is not good. The position of the baby's head should not be facing up so that normal delivery can take place properly. From the situation your baby is currently experiencing, the small pelvis with the head tilted upwards, it is feared that difficulties may occur during normal delivery, such as the baby being stuck, taking a long time in labor, and possibly fetal distress.
Therefore, it is recommended that you and your family consult a doctor again so that the doctor can explain clearly and more precisely about your current situation.
