how far in advance do you book cesear?
I am now 30 weeks, but if at next scan baby doesnt turn and remains breech, then I have to have a c-section.
How many days before your due date do you usually book a c-section, assuming your doctor doesnt want you to go into labour?

Caesareans are usually done at about 38 weeks. Your doctor will sort out the timing.
