Angry baby's head mesuring in front

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.

Im so sorry to hear about the confusing news! so your frined is still pregnant then? The doctors should be shot! How many weeks is she ? the hospital should be the ones to advise her on this matter. She needs medical professional advise that is from a credible source.

Let me know what happens

Re: baby's head mesuring in front

she is still pregnant and fine.the baby was just in a funny position.she is 32wks and her midwife at her 29wk appointment said the baby's body was mesuring 29wks but the head was mesuring at 32wks but did'nt say that this was a problem.but as far as i know that should'nt be but as you can tell she does'nt have the best docs to advise her,and i don't want to scare her in any way.
