    4/5 engaged??

    Just came back from a check-up at QMH. Saw my DR notes: 4/5 engaged.

    What does it mean?? Thanks.

    When a baby engages it means he/ she decents into the mother's pelvis, at around 34- 36 weeks but can come up again too, so it isn't necessarily any indication that labour/ birth is imminent. Some babies dont engage up until birth.
    1/ 5 means least engaged and 5/ 5 is fully engaged.
