    head fixed in pelvis? what does that mean?

    I have been told today my baby's head is "fixed" in the pelvis @ 34+3 weeks. What does this mean? I was under the impression that the correct terminology was engaged ?/5ths. Is fixed different to engaged?

    Hi mlbrookes,

    Welcome to the forum and congratulations on your pregnancy!

    Your baby's head being 'fixed' in the pelvis means the head is fixed in the pelvic brim and is not going to move out of there. The baby's head will begin to move further down through the different fifths of engagement.

    Warm wishes,
    LJ
