    So next week I'm being induced for medical reasons - baby's not engaged yet, anyone know if it's actually going to work?? Really hoping to not have a c-section.

    I think if you had no chance of a vaginal birth they would be taking you straight to section.
    I resume once the contraction start the baby will get themselves into position, whether they like it or not

    Labour may take a little longer to come but doesnt mean c-section ...Ethan wasnt engaged when they gave me a sweep but he still came out just took him a little longer try not to worry xxx

    I was induced, she wasnt engaged and it was over from stepping into hospital to having her in my arms in 15 hours, so it can happen. Good luck

    A week could make all the difference hun and you may well find your baby is engaged by then, once the contractrions get going it will certainly give it more than a helping hand as they pull the baby towards the right place, good luck xxx

    I guess at least the baby is head down, but s/he's been head down for weeks... obviously having too much fun in there to engage!
