    It means she is half engaged
    Or half way into being engaged at least that is my understanding of it, how deep into your pelvis she is.
    ETA DS was 4/5ths and he was too far out of my pelvis for a sweep

    I think it relates to how much of the head they can palpate

    It's how far down the head is, they divide it into fifths and the head is 2 fifths down...5/5 is all the way down!

    From what my OB explained was that your babies head is 2/5 engaged - so their head is down to about their temples.
