C-section

1. Why must a c-section be done a week or two before the due date?

2. I had a c-section in Nov. 2006 because of some chromesone defects. I was 18 wks pregnant. My due date for this pregnancy is 27 July 2008. The c-section is scheduled for the 16th of July. Can I still have a normal birth (My doctor prefer a c-section)?

Normal birth is not advisable in this case. CS is done 2 weeks before as an elective. If you wait too long you may go into labour which is not what your doctor wants
