I am sorry but I do not know what 2/5 head means Can you provide further explanation? YOur midwife cannot know if you will go into labor within a week. And of course an online question service cannot tell you that either. Most babies are born between 39-41 weeks. Not earlier.

It means baby head engaged and i had my babys at 38 weeks i was just wondering would my midwive be right maybe a week left or so thanks

Ok so that means the head is engaged. And no your midwife cannot tell by exam that you have a week left, it is merely an educated guess. Its more likely to deliver around 39-41 weeks.
