You can wait for spontaneous onset of labour. Meconium aspiration need not necessarily happen again. All through labour your baby's heartbeat needs to be monitored. Please don't be too anxious and keep worrying about the past. Worrying will only produce bad chemicals in the body which will worsen any situation. May you have a safe delivery and a healthy baby. Good luck.
