Engagement is how deep the presenting part e.g the baby's head is below the brim of the pelvis. It is measured by how much can still be felt through the abdomen.
5/5 - free
4/5 - sitting on the pelvic prim
3/5 - lower but most is still above the brim
2/5 = engaged as most is below the brim
And 1/5 or 0/5 = deeply engaged as hardly still palpable from above

In first time mothers, engagement tends to happen in the last few weeks of pregnancy.
