I'm 40 weeks 2 days pregnant with a posterior cervix dilated to a one for about 2 weeks. I was given the option to wait until this comig Monday or schedule an induction for tomorrow. My question is.... Do posterior cervix mean a c section???.
Hi. While a posterior cervix may not respond to induction and require a C-section, that isn't always the case. You need to undergo the induction and see how things go because the cervix may straighten itself during labor and then you can deliver vaginally.
