Head diameter of aFetus
Doc. my daughter is 33 weeks pregnant and her Gyne told her that he is concerned about the size of the babies head. Apparently the head is bigger than the lines on the measuring craft.

Does she needs a peadi when she goes into labour or how do we handle this problem.

Must she go for a second scan or leave it as is?

Please help

She needs to have a follow-up scan and her Gynae must discuss the result[ if the child's head is still larger than the normal] with a paediatric neonatologist.
