How will I know that my baby`s head has engaged? What will I feel?

Answer: Hi, Engagement is sometimes called ‘lightening’ as it may ease some of the pressure under your ribs – when the baby drops it sits lower. Many women are not aware of this and will only find out after a visit to the midwife. Best wishes, Alex
