Sorry hun, I'm not sure what this means, maybe that 3/5 of head can still be felt? Why not give midwifes a quick ring to explain your concerns?

Hi Hun, from my knowledge (I have exact same in my notes) this means that the baby is head down and that the head is 3/5th engaged. Babies head can be engaged for 6-8 weeks prior to birth the MW told me... xx

Ceph = Head down
3/5 palpable = Three Fifths of the baby's head can still be felt... Thus meaning it is only Two Fifths Engaged.




---------------------------------------------------------
Useful Info :

If 5 finger widths of your baby's head is felt, it is written as 5/5 palpable or 'unengaged'.
If 4 finger widths of your baby's head is felt, it is written as '4/5' palpable or 1/5 engaged.
If 3 finger widths of your baby's head is felt, it is written as '3/5' palpable or 2/5 engaged.
If 2 finger widths of your baby's head is felt, it is written as '2/5' palpable or 3/5 engaged.
If 1 finger width of your baby's head is felt, it is written as '1/5' palpable or 4/5 engaged.
If your baby's head cannot be felt it is written as 'fully engaged' or 'not palpable'.

Head doesn't have to engage before labour either, they can go so far then stop and wait til labour...

Fussy little things these babies.
