At Wellbaby we see mothers concerned about the positioning of their baby in the womb. Ideally the baby will come into the cephalic presentation. In this position the baby is head-down, facing the mother's back, chin tucked to the chest so that the back of the head can readily enter the pelvis. Babies often settle into this position between 32 and 36 weeks of pregnancy.
