In brief: Breech

A small percentage of fetus' r breech in the 3rd trimester. Presentation is based on fetal movement.
Sometimes a baby is breech because the bony structure of the pelvis is contracted and never allows the fetal head to become engaged in the women's pelvis.

In brief: Who knows

This can be a completely random event, or in some cases malformations of the uterus or fibroids distort the normal cavity and create abnormal lies.
