Brow presentation

Figure 8.6 Brow presentation. (Source: WHO, as in Figure 8.1)

In brow presentation, the baby's head is only partially extended at the neck (compare this with face presentation), so its brow (forehead) is the presenting part (Figure 8.6). This presentation is rare, with an incidence of 1 in 1000 deliveries at full term.
