English term or phrase: fetal station
Fetal station: This is the relationship between the presenting part, whether that be the head, shoulder, buttocks, or feet, and two parts of the maternal pelvis called the ischial spines. Normally the ischial spines are the narrowest part of the pelvis, and are a natural measuring point for the delivery progress. If the presenting part lies above the ischial spines, the station is reported as a negative number from 0 to -3 where each number is a centimeter. If the presenting part lies below the ischial spines, the station is reported as a positive number from 0 to 3 where each number is a centimeter. The baby is said to be "engaged" in the pelvis when it reaches 0 station.

\"EL TRABAJO DE PARTO
El trabajo de parto se describe en términos de ***estación fetal***, posición, actitud y presentación.

***Estación fetal***:

Estas espinas normalmente son la parte más estrecha de la pelvis y la medida natural del progreso del trabajo de parto. Si la parte que se presenta está por encima de las espinas del isquión, la estación se reporta como un número negativo de 0 a 5 donde cada número es un centímetro, mientras que si la parte que se presenta está por debajo de las espinas del isquión, la estación se reporta como un número positivo de 0 a 5 donde cada número es un centímetro...\"
