Our expert says:
Elective caesareans are done between 38 and 39 weeks pregnancy. This is worked out from your early scan. The reason for this is that the majority of women do not go into labour before then. If you do, you should just get to the hospital as quickly as possible and the caesarean will be done then. The risks are not very high if done early in the labour.
