Anyone ever heard of this? — The Bump
Natural Birth

Anyone ever heard of this?

We just found out that our baby girl has a cyst on her ovary, and it's pretty big - 6cm.  It takes up most of her abdomen. Sad  The perinatologist I saw said that on a scale of 1 to 10 of how bad/serious it is, it's a 7, but they just had a mom who's daughter's cyst was a 9 out of 10 and they let her deliver as planned (though I don't know what her plan was, besides I could guess vaginally). 

Has anyone ever experienced this or know someone who has?  How did labor and delivery go?  Were any interventions needed?  I've been nervous this whole pregnancy about hospital staff trying to bully me into interventions and I'm worried that this cyst might be one more reason for them to do that.  Even if intervention does end up being necessary, I would still be bummed about not having a natural birth, so I'm hoping that at least one of you have a story of a natural birth for a baby with a cyst and everything being fine. TIA!
