This study is prospective study include 50 pregnant women with difficult extraction of the impacted fetal head during caesarean section divided into 2 groups according to the method of delivery of the fetal head- push method or reverse breech (pulling) method. The study compared the maternal morbidity as assessed by extension of the uterine incision, damage of a visceral organ, intra and postoperative blood transfusion, postpartum hemorrhage, wound infection and duration of hospital stay. Neonatal morbidity was assessed by Apgar score and admission to neonatal intensive care unit. Maternal complications were found to be less with pulling method than pushing also neonatal outcome found to be better with pulling method
