Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

A website cannot tell a woman when and how is the best way to deliver a baby but a c-section is more likely with such a preemie - a birth would likely be too high risk. Most babies born after 28 weeks survive although they will need special care. The ultimate decision between you and your medical team, based on all the issues involved.
I'm sorry your pregnancy is so high risk - we wish you the best.
