    Sbs 9:30 Thursday night. It is the US one so it's slightly different to the UK one but entertaining none the less. It has helped me get a clearer perspective on what I DON'T want in my next birth. Lol

    My DD was face up too, god only knows how long I pushed!
    With DS I was desprite for him to be forward so I sat in my old couch, my bum kinda sank down into it, and then I bent my knees either side of me, and u lent forward, kinda like a frog? And i leant forward. Very comfortable
    He was in the right space.
    How long have you got to go? I an on my phone so can't see any ticker :-)
    Maybe if you sit like that every time you are home? My waters also broke spontaneously. Goodluck :-) I hope bubba turned for you, if not I hope
    It all go awesomely :-)

    I gave birth to my boy face up and was pushing for 2hrs the midwifes didn't even know he was facing that way they kept saying oh we can see his head and he has no hair but that's because it was his forehead they were looking at i was wondering why it was just so hard to push him out they said they were very suprised i did it, he came out with the darkest purple bruising all over his head and blisters the poor litte guy, your bub spins but if not you will get thru it i did

    I hope bub turns for you also but just a bit of positivity - my DD2 was posterior and the pushing was only minutes, the whole labour was around 4 hrs.
    Good luck

    You ladies are awesome, thanks for the stories about your lil sunny side up babies!

    I hate that it worries me, I really don't like to worry or think negatively when it comes to labour and have been so pumped and excited to give birth but since finding this out I just feel crap about it. My main concern is that she will become stuck, oh my greatest fear is they wont get to her in time I think it's because my DS was born "blue" and they had to resus him at birth.. I was always grateful that it had only taken me 4 minutes to push him out and they were able to give him oxygen quickly. i know this is the worst possible case scenario, but I can't help it
    Thanks again for the tips and positive stories; I have been lying in my left hand side and getting down on all fours all the time. If she hasn't moved by the day I go into labour, I will definitely keep myself active throughout the labour

    I've been so shocked by this US version! I can't believe all the sterility and medicalisation of their birthing process, full surgical trays laid out for normal vaginal deliveries, stirrups for Gods sake. It's soooo wrong!

    And I too was baffled by all the women just laying in the bed and not moving, and everybody with IV drips in until I saw one episode where a midwife said the epidural rate is >90%!! I just about fell off the couch! I still can't believe it. And the midwives keep saying really belitting/discouraging things to women who are wanting to try it without epidurals/ or trying vaginal deliveries despite "big" babies. I've really been quite shocked.

    One midwife said to a lady (who was attempting drug free) "you wouldn't get a tooth pulled without anaesthetic would you?!" which made me so ****ed off I had to turn the TV off and go to bed!

    NB: while I am a passionate natural VB supporter I also fully support a woman's right to epidurals etc, I just couldn't believe how widespread and the pressure from the medical staff that these things were a normal part of labour etc etc.
