Hello,

My friend should have got her baby 3 weeks ago, but she did not even got contractions or pains, or did she attend her appointment to the hospital.

She keeps on waiting and is not willing to have a cesarean that's why she did not attend her appointment.

Could this be dangerous please?

Is it normal that labour did not start after 3 weeks from due date?

Your friend might be very afraid of having the cesarean but in doing so she is endangering both her life and her babies life.

She should have definitely gone to the appointment. 3 weeks lateness means that the baby is lazy and won't make the effort to move out. Her labor need to be provoked and she must go to the hospital as soon as possible. Some babies are also on the wrong position and are not able to do the effort to come out.

DO encourage her to go immediately.
