    Default Baby born Posterior

    Hi, just wondering how many people's babies where born posterior, my Dd was born posterior, they didn't realize til delivery resulted in 3rd degree tear, DS wasn't , I have seen on here a lot of people seem to have Bub's posterior, just wondering how common it is.

    My DD was born posterior as much as I love my sunny-side up baby I really hope that this bub gives me a nice, normal labour with no sign of being posterior! :P

    Both my DDs came out posterior. Wasn't mentioned at all until the heads came out. DS was not.
    To me the girls labour wasn't more painful or harder, just different.
    Also no pain relief or stitches here.

    DD ended up being born posterior. She was side on when I was in labour, so my OB had to turn her with forceps. He couldn't turn her anterior, so had to turn her posterior so she'd come out.

    yup! another sunny side up baby here.
    DD was posteria the whole way through and was stubborn and didnt turn at all much to the surprise of the midwives.
    I don't remember the contraction pains as it was all in my back so hoping this baby will be different lol

    I laboured with ds posterior all the way through till they managed to turn him last half an hour. It was hard going. I couldnt imagine giving birth. You guys are wonderfully strong women

    My DS was born posterior, turned that way in my last week of pregnancy and that didn't change thru labour. Nothing prepared me for the back and hip pain of a posterior labour and even tho the doc kept suggestion a c-section, I persevered and delivered drug free with assistance with the ventouse.

    I'm currently 39+6 weeks pregnant and found out at 38 weeks that this bub has turned posterior too :-(
    Have come to the conclusion that it's the shape of my pelvis that contributes to this. The thought of another posterior labour is leaving me feeling very anxious and I have been doing everything to make this baby turn to no avail. I know I've done it before but the truth is I'm terrified :-(

    Both my DS and DD were posterior births. With my 2nd I told the midwives and doctor she was posterior as it was exactly the same type of back pain with both.

    DS was posterior 4 weeks before the birth, didnt change during labour and he ended up being born with the aid of forceps after 3 failed attempts of ventouse.
