Labor disorder: Most women who are having their first baby are candidates for a trial of labor/to try to have their baby vaginally. The progress of labor is closely monitored, as well as the prenatal history, to give guidance to baby's size. Abnormal diabetes screening in pregnancy may be a clue. At the time of labor if descent, dilation or progress are abnormal a cesarean may be indicated.

Not always disease: Fetal growth can be greater than normal if maternal diabetes or certain genetic conditions. Babies can be too large than their mothers' pelvic outlet if that outlet is narrow or if the baby is large, eg, overdue. It is important to know the mother's medical and obstetric history and risk factors and an ultrasound estimate of fetal weight before delivery if there is a concern.
