    Default elective C section at 38-39 weeks?

    I’ve been advised to have a C section by a Gynaecologist and a colorectal specialist. I think I will take their advice. My question is, providing everything does smoothly can I request to have baby out at 39 weeks…. About 7 days before my due date?
    This will sound terrible but if I can get the baby out 7 days before the due date then I will get the Paid Parental leave which is $10,000 !

    What is the earliest you can have a an elective C-section in a Sydney public hospital.

    Most will do 38-39 weeks anyway. I'm sure if you explain to your ob why they will have no issues at all delivering you before the cut off date. It's not like you're asking to be delivered at 35-36 weeks.

    I think most do 39 weeks. If you're private I doubt you will get an argument. I chose the date with both DDs and it was 39 weeks. I wanted to go a bit later with DD2 but my ob said no.

    just for interest sake, why wouldn't you get PPL if you went an extra week?

    As everyone as said, I think you will have no problem an elective at 39 weeks, as that was what was recommended by my Hospital.

    They are cutting the PPL mid next year so OP must be due when that happens.
