I am planning to have elective C Section in a private hospital as i am terrified of natural birth. Which week do they usually schedule it for?

If there are no medical reasons they will probably leave it as late as possible - 39 weeks.

My first baby it was 39 weeks and baby number 2 it looks like the same unless I go into labour first. Both will be at the private hospital. I understand some public hospitals do it at 38 weeks

Even with pre eclampsia ( under control and monitored) and even though both babies had IUGR, the plan was always to get as close to 39 weeks as possible.
DD was scheduled for 39+1 but waters broke the day before so delivered later that day.
DS was scheduled for 39+1 and delivered on that date.

Mine was scheduled for first available appt after 39 weeks (public).
