    I'm not sure hun, my LO is breech and I was offered the ECV but nobody has said anything about him being engaged. I assumed that a baby can only engage if the head is down :shrug:

    Hope you can have your water birth :hug:

    Don't think a baby can't engage if it's in breech position, engagement means the head is going below the pelvic rim.

    Yes a breech baby can engage. My daughter's bum engaged and quite fast too. At 36 weeks her bum was 4/5th engaged and at 37 weeks she was 1/5th engaged. I had her a week later, naturally! Obviously no-one was aware she was breech otherwise things would have been alot different! x
