welcome to healthcaremagic
there is no term as foetal head free in medical language
when foetal head is down towards pelvis and it is not fixed in the pelvis it is termed as foetal head is free
you can always talk to your treating doctor and be explained about any confusion in your mind
I think U mean to say that fetal head is floating free.By 36wks normally during first delivery fetal head descends down in to maternal pevis.If due to some reason it does not happen then doctors say that fetal head is not engaged or it is free floating.It may pose problems for normal birth & may require LSCS.Be in touch with your gyno.
