I have a dear friend who is about 5'1" tall who *really* wanted and tried for a homebirth, and labored for 3 days, then pushed for something like 6 hours before transfering for an emergency c/sec with a 10lb baby. Her SO is over 6' tall, and their babies are built like daddy, I guess.

Knowing this woman, I know she tried everything to get that baby out, but he just wasn't fitting through.

So, I'd say, yes, I believe it happens. Occasionally. But I'm sure that it's much more commonly misdiagnosed, and your step s-i-l would not know until she tried.
