Our expert says:
Caesareans are done between 38 and 39 weeks to avoid the small risk of complications such as breathing difficulties. If a caesarean is done before this time, it is usually because of a complication where it is risky to continue with the pregnancy. It is then a balance between the risks of continuing the pregnancy and the risk of breathing problems in the baby.
