    Default Posterior Baby

    I am 37 weeks, 3 days & just had a midwife appointment. My midwife said the baby is semi-posterior.... I cried the whole way home. Considering he was fine at my appointment a week ago

    Have googled ideas to help get the baby out of the posterior position.. Just wondering if any of you have had this & what actually worked for you??

    Hi had my dd at 40+3 and she was posterior most of labour. I had a wonderful birth 8 hours drug free vaginal, she turned as she came out. It just ment all the pain was in my back not tummy. Im told its a lot more painful but being my first i had nothing to compare with so assumed it was just wat labour was like :-) i tried acupuncture and lots of fitball but she was happy as she was. Try not to stress too much u can have a perfectly normal birth with posterior baby.

    Hi, my baby was also posterior and I had a 9 hour labour, no pain relief. I felt my contractions in my back rather than my front and apparently they are more painful but I have nothing to compare it to, it was my first birth. She was turned in the end with a suction cap. I wouldn't worry too much - as long as your baby is still happy :-)

    All the best!

    How is your babies position now OP? Definitely check out spinning babies if still posterior. My dd was perfectly positioned for so long and then turned posterior the day before labour. Unfortunately she had a flexed head too so my labour was pretty awful but I was induced. I've heard plenty of positive stories of posterior labours. All the best!

    Sorry I haven't replied.. I had my son on Monday... He wasn't posterior... The couple of days prior to his birth my back pain eased right off ... So I think he must have turned I didn't end up doing anything to get him to turn because my back pain was so bad I couldn't even stand.. Luckily he just did it himself!

    Lol, Completely off topic but my lil girl was born on monday too. Good day it was! Hope your enjoying your newborn cuddles as much as I am.

    Good to hear that your lil man turned for you before the birth. My lil girl was in a great position till right before labour. Took a whole day of back pre-labour hanging over a ball before she turned. We got there in the end tho.

    bumping this one - my bub is OP and I'm 37+2. he's been that way for at least 8 weeks and I'm so so so sore from the rib kicking and backaches...

    encouraging to hear bub turned for you!

    I hope my bub turns too, have been trying for a while but mabe he'll do it before transition?
