I would have transfered if baby had spina bifida - the difference between a spina bifida baby born by c-section and a spina bifida baby born naturally is baby's ability to walk... I think it would be selfish of my to take away the opportunity. Other than that, placenta previa or abruption, maybe cord prolapse (I might just tuck it back up and keep going depending on what my gut says), and definitely if my instinct says transfer.
