the opinion of gynac is that baby not settled down i.e. still head is not engaged.
One cause is that placenta is low down and not allowing baby's head down.There are other causes by which baby's head is not engaged.
There are all chances of going for Caeserin section.(C.S.operation)

If the baby is coming by the head (cephalic), then it can come down into the pelvis during labour. But if you mean by ' upper side' that it is upside down (Breech), then you need to deliver abdominally ( C-section ). I hope I understood your question right
