This article indicates that the “obstetrical dilemma,” or a fine line of pelvis size that optimally accommodates walking with passage of the head, isn’t as simple as we think.

The writer reports that learning more in this way may help us do a better job in helping babies and moms survive birth (and potentially alter our own evolutionary trend).
