I think it depends on the type of malpresentations , if it was a leg back etc I wouldn't worry about it, but if they were all backwards or breech then I would say that it might be genetic.
Sorry about your season Beefy ,next year will be better (that is what kept me sane last season). Hope all your problems are behind you now .
