  1. Normal delivery is possible in baby with loose loop not in babies with tight loop if lie of baby is longitudinal but your baby is oblique not longitudinal .normal vaginal delivery is possible in longitudinal lie.Sometimes baby with oblique lie can rotate and become longitudinal so you can wait for a week.oblique lie is common in small babies with lot of liquor or in cephalopelvic disproportion.if baby remain oblique Caesarean section is needed.
