Presentation

In pregnancy the presenting part is the part of the baby that is coming out first. Usually this is the back of the head (occiput), but it may be the buttocks (breech), front of the head (brow) or face. The presentation of the baby during labour is very important, as it will determine the ease of labour and its complications.
