Abstract

  1. 1.

    Normal delivery is marked by a characteristic fetal presentation and a stereotyped series of fetal repositions.

     
  2. 2.

    Failure to present in the usual occiput anterior position may lead to prolongation and complications of labor and may be incompatible with vaginal delivery.

     
  3. 3.

    Careful assessment of fetal presentation is critical to the diagnosis and management of abnormal presentations.
