Impacted foetal head is common in emergency caesarean sections with consequences for mother and foetus, rarely but devastatingly resulting in cranial injuries and foetal death. In prevention, the Fetal Pillow is a simple inflatable device used to push the foetal head upwards, which can reduce complications. Evidence supports applying the reverse breech technique over other manoeuvres. In this review, we emphasise limiting uterine extensions and the push-method. An algorithm which can be integrated in obstetric training, is proposed for prophylaxis and treatment of an impacted foetal head
