D

Feedback
A Breech is the most common malpresentation affecting 3 to 4 of all labors.
B Descent is often slow because the breech is not as good a dilating wedge as is the fetal head.
C Diagnosis is made by abdominal palpation and vaginal examination. It is con-firmed by ultrasound.
D Fetuses with neuromuscular disorders have a higher rate of breech presentation perhaps because they are less capable of movement within the uterus.
