    My advise, spend as much time as you can between now and birth on your hands and knees, hopefully baby might turn. Good luck!

    For those of you who have said they had a posterior labour and the baby turned...how is that not an anterior birth? I had back pain for both anterior and posterior, but the posterior birth was far more intense. Especially as the head cannot come out the normal way, it comes out with the widest part first. The actual posterior birthing was far more painful. It was not a myth.
    Agree with all other posts re hands and knees and use of water. I didn't know bub was posterior until actually in labour an wish I had the chance to try an turn him. Will be trying to do everything to turn this bub if he looks posterior.

    all my 3 babies were posterior. I had no drugs or intervention with any of them. It is your 3rd birth. You will be fine!! As all the others have said just make sure you're leaning forward. There is every chance the little one will turn during labour if not before (mine didn't but as someone else said, i think it is my pelvis shape or something). good luck!

    My first was posterior. My second was going to be..and I was very fearful. Then i found this wonderful website that helped turn her around the right way. One week she was posterior, I did the exercise, and at the checkup the next week, anterior. But you have to keep doing it regularly because I never did it again and by the time labor started she was posterior again.

    be sure to have someone to assist you with it tho as you dont want to hurt yourself/bub

    All my checks ups revealed a posterior bub. I didn't feel any back labour though, and she came out easily enough (well, after 12 hours of labour, yeah ok not super easy :P ) so can only assume she shifted herself around at some point up to or during labour. It's awesome to be educated & ready for "back labour" but keep in mind she may just turn, it may just all work itself out.

    My now 8 week old was posterior also (first bub and ended up being c section). Throughout my whole pregnancy i would do my daily routine of being on all fours swinging hips etc and when sitting on the couch or chair try put pillows behind your back. My midwife told me its like gravity and if you lean back, bub will also. (if that makes sense). Come 38 weeks i got lazy stopped doing my daily routine on all fours and slouched on the couch and he became posteriour and i couldnt spin him back round before labour. I had front and back labour! There is also a website called Spinning Babies http://www.spinningbabies.com/ this can ggive you some tips.
    Best of luck!

    I had a normal labour with my first and a posterior labour with my second. The second was by far the worst. The pain in the back was horrible. I wasn't allowed in the shower or bath though due to complications and I think that would have helped me a lot as it helped with my first. So I would recommend using water as pain relief.

    My labour pain was absolutely dreadful in my back and DD was anterior. I spent most of the time once I got to hospital straddling a chair with the shower pointed at my lower back and had DH rubbing there once I got in the bath or anywhere but the shower. I got a big welt that's healing up at the moment from all the heat and rubbing.
    Use the shower, heat packs, kneeling on all fours and whatever you do don't lie down on the bed on your back! Good luck
