Angry baby's head mesuring 3wks ahead!

hi i'm asking this question about a friends baby,she does'nt seem to have the best docs and the other day she went to hospital because she had'nt felt the baby move for a few days when she got there they could'nt find the heartbeat straight away so they told her the baby had died without any further investigation,they then sent her for a scan just to be sure and the baby was fine!although she obviously was'nt by then!,anyway the prob now is she just told me that her baby's head is 2 weeks ahead of its body according to her midwife,what does this mean and how do i give her advice in the best way??any advice is greatly appreciated.

Geesh that means get a new doctor. I can't believe they didnt explain it any further for her as far as what it meant and if it was harmful. Sometimes babies just have big heads though. My niece's head is in the 90th percentile for her age (7 months) and we all joke about it and call her the cranium
