In brief: Possibly

Some babies are transverse (lie with the belly or back down rather than the head or bottom) in normal uterus.
But it is more common in women who have a heart shaped uterus (archuate uterus).

In brief: YEs

The presentation of the baby can be related to uterine shape and anatomy.

Heart shaped uterus means a wall in the middle of the top of the uterus that divides the upper section. This is the largest part of the uterus and the babies butt and legs tends to trend that way towards the end because that is the biggest part and needs the most room. Decreasing that space does effect the position of the baby and as they get bigger they have less room to move around which limits
