    My bub was not posterior, but you've got a bit of time yeah? What about trying to get your bub in a better position before birth? Spinning babies etc.
    There are heaps of techniques to get baby forward. I spent the last 8 weeks leaning over a birth ball when ever possible.

    I played spinning baby for weeks before I had katelyn.but then id sit cross legged on the couch and lean back which is a great position for making baby turn posterier again.

    Im not sure what pos she was in in the end but her head got stuck against my lower back and it was horrible.

    BUT shes my vbac baby and thats all that matters.

    I dont think posterior or not effects vbac aside from some hospitals having time limits for vbac and posterior can mean a longer labour. But if thats the case tell them to stove their time limit up their **** (with all due respect of course )

    Thanks everyone for your thoughts and advice. I will have a look at the website. I am a little bit slack with exercises so have to get motivated. I do have a long way to go so I know bubba will probably turn a million times before EDD. And I have to have a scan to check on placenta previa to know whether I am in with a chance to VBAC.

    I was just curious to read of other people's experiences of posterior birth. Boobycino do you have a birht story to share. Can you link it please.
