Presentation in Obstetrics refers to the relationship between the leading fetal part and the pelvic inlet: cephalic, breech, or shoulder presentation. A malpresentation is an abnormal (non-vertex) presentation.

Types of Presentations

Thus the various presentations are:

  • Cephalic (Head first):
    • Vertex—commonest and associated with least complications
    • Sinciput (forehead)
    • Brow (Eye brows)
    • Face
    • Chin
  • Breech presentation[1] (Baby is oriented up-side-down with mother standing):
    • Complete breech
    • Footling breech
    • Frank breech
