I'm 8 months pregnant scanning position shows longitudinal lie and cephalic presentation may I have normal delivery and also scanning show polyhydramnios is that fine ?
Answer: Yes normal delivery is possible in cephalic presentation or head presentationor head-first presentation is a situation at childbirth where the fetus is in a longitudinal lie and the head enters the pelvis first.
Polyhydramnios is a condition where a woman simply has too much amniotic fluid during her pregnancy. As a rule of thumb, polyhydramnios is usually diagnosed with an AFI over 25 or a big pocket of fluid on the ultrasound of over 8 cm.

It shouldn’t affect you baby but it might lead to some complications in delivery.
• With more fluid, the baby can have trouble getting head down
• increased risk of uterine cord prolapse, which is when the umbilical cord slips out of the uterus and into the vagina before delivery of the baby
• increased risk of bleeding complications after birth (the uterus can simply get stretched out and tired)
• premature labor and delivery
Question:My baby is in breech position and I am 36 week pregnant.... Is normal delivery possible.....
Baby come in head down position on there own by 32-37 weeks if they dont take the position by this phase there are very low chance that baby would late position after that.
In metro cities some expert doctors opt for EVC (external cephalic version) to make babies position correct. Its a manual process to turn babies head down which has risks so only expert doctors handle it with lot of monitoring.
