Our expert says:
I think that you are being advised to have a caesarean because your doctors want to avoid any small risks that may occur during labour, e.g. cord prolapse or tearing loose of the placenta. Though these are not very frequent, they cannot be predicted and you have tried very hard to have this pregnancy. Generally caesareans are done at 38=39 weeks. If the due date is definitely 27 October, then 20 October would be the usual time to do the caesarean, barring any complications before then.
