Sir Paul McCartney's wife Heather Mills is preparing herself for a difficult birth when her first child arrives in mid-November (03).

The former beatle's spouse lost a leg in a collision with a police motorcycle in 1993, and the infirmity has affected her ability to give birth naturally.

She says, "I've got to have a Caesarean because I had a metal plate put in my pelvis after losing my leg in the accident.

"So the baby would be like, 'Let me out of here.'"
