    Default Turning a posterior baby in late pregnancy

    I am 36 weeks pregnant and bub is posterior. I am really worried about this as my last labour was posterior and it was very painful and twice as long as my first labour (which was anterior). I don't want to go through it again.
    Anyone have any success stories turning their posterior bub? Give me some hope please.

    Default Turning a posterior baby in late pregnancy

    Some babies are just meant to be posterior unfortunately, is your placenta anterior?

    Oh and Chiro can't hurt! Preferably someone who does the webster technique.

    Yes it seems bub is quite settled where s/he is. The pain I am having is constant and I still have 5 weeks left just quite depressing.

    Default Turning a posterior baby in late pregnancy

    Does an anterior placenta mean a posterior Bub is more likely??
    My last was posterior and flipped around about 20 minutes before she was actually born. I was having acupuncture during labour though to turn her.
    I've got an anterior placenta this time around.

    I had an anterior placenta and had a posterior bubs. Not that anyone picked that up until I was in full blown labour with excruciating back pain.

    If you do have a posterior and are struggling with the back pain, consider sterile water injections. They are awesome for it!

    I went to a chiro and dd did turn, but turned back while I was in labour. I have had two posterior labours now, this last one turned not long before birth. I payed on my left side for a few pushes and viola, she turned.

    If I were you I'd try chiro and Webster technique. I didn't try it until 39 weeks. If I'd gone sooner it may have worked better

    Rebozo technique, I think it's called. Acupuncture. Definitely sterile water injections if baby is still posterior during labour.
