Hi, does anyone know....
Once the head is down /engaged long until labour starts?

I have elective C-sect booked 2nd march(will be 38+5) and have been told that the head was down about a week ago.

I am getting nervous, i thinl, becuase my friend wasnt due until 25th Feb and gave birth this morning (healthy 6lb 10 boy) !!
