    From what i can remember hun , This means the portion of babies head left above the bone , So the if your 5ths palp it means heads fully down below the bone and engaged .
    I think Free means you can still feel all of babies head freely above the bone ..
    Some one correct me if iam wrong lol.
    But quiet sure thats what it means , But mine didnt go full down untill the day of labour lol so never got owt written on that bit lol . xx .
