The answer to this is A. The nurse should look for molding that will show through fetal body flexion or extension. Take note that there are different ways that a body can be delivered depending on the position of the baby.

The common position of the fetus is that it should face rearward. The face and the body of the fetus should be angled to one side. The neck is also very important because it is soft.

It should be flexed before the baby can be removed with the head first. There are some abnormal positions such as the breech position which means that the feet and the buttocks of the baby will be delivered first.
