I was well aware that the head was engaged. I could feel the pressure and the pain when I would dilate and the baby would descend a little bit. I am so lucky I didn't have to worry about that. I know some people who had breach babies or they had to have the baby turned so they would line up so the head could engage and they could descend. I heard its painful and dangerous when they have to turn the baby. There is a possibility that the placenta will detach from the uterus wall.
