Pregnancy in a fibroid uterus is not rare. However cervical fibroid is rare in pregnancy and has unique management challenges. We report a case of cervical fibroid in a Gravida2 Para1 patient that was found incidentally in a routine ultrasound in the second trimester. The fibroid grew in pregnancy till term, caused obstructed labour, a Cesarean section was required for the baby. Post surgery the fibroid prolapsed out of the introitus. Conservative management was decided to prevent surgical complications, delayed consequences of surgery and to preserve future child bearing. The case shows that conservative management over surgery is sometimes the appropriate choice.
