The most common and easiest combo is head first,facing down, because baby has the neck bent down&uses less space thru the birth canal.For you, the baby is head first,but the head is facing up(with the neck extended).If baby is not yet in the birth canal,there’s a big chance he/she will turn on its own.Otherwise,delivery is more difficult, and may need the help of a suction cup or C-Section.
