    2 of my 3 babies turned posterior during labour- my OB turned them just before I pushed.

    Dd was posterior and turned during labour. Hurt a lot, in my back.

    Ds was posterior at 41 weeks, but turned between then and birth 4 days later.

    I think it is reasonably common. Fingers crossed bub turns for you!

    DD was posterior, she didn't turn at all despite everything I tried. I had a beautiful, drug free, quick (just under 6h!) birthing despite her positioning.

    My 1st was born sunny side up! I had a 4hr, easy, not overly painful labour. Posterior isn't always doom and gloom :-)

    i birthed 2 posteriors. I tried everything to turn them, leaning forward, yoga ball, hip turns, laying on side with one leg up but nothing worked. The labours were all in the back. Its from the spine on spine of you and bub. The back pain for me was worse after my waters broke. Get your birthing partner to practise rubbing your back...if bub doesn't turn you'll need it. You'll be fine though. Both mine were posterior and big (over 9lb each)

    My first son was born posterior, was warned prior to going into labour by my midwife that its going to be long and hard. I had extreme back pain and it took a lot more pushing to get him out but was a normal 6-7 hour labour. My daughter was also posterior but she turned during labour and I could certainly tell the difference. 3-4 pushes and she was out compared to nearly 2 hours pushing with my son. So yes, it is possible to have a posterior baby. Go in with a positive attitude, you'll be fine. Good luck!

    Thank you so much to all my posterior mums for all your response. I am definitely feeling a lot more relaxed about it... The midwife made out like it was a bad thing & that I should be doing everything I can to get him to turn! So it's very reassuring to know that if he doesn't turn I'll still be able to have a natural vaginal birth (if everything else goes to plan).

    I have been using heat packs at home which really help with the back pain and I'm definitely keen to try the sterile water injections as well.

    I'm definitely feeling so much better now... So I appreciate all of you lovely ladies sharing your stories.

    Hi
    I had 2 posterior bubbies one I laboured for 8 hours and pushed for 4 mins and he was out (3.64kg) and the second I laboured for 6 hours and pushed again for only 5 mins (3.81kg) Yes it was painful but having a baby is. Don't let all the stories worry you. :-) Good luck and think positive.

    This back pain is shocking.... I can barely walk... Feels like I'm going to collapse. Does anyone have any tips to help with it? I have tried being on all fours... But it only relieves the pain when I'm on all fours lol... I know sitting down is making it worse but the only place I feel comfortable is sitting down with a heat pack on my back.

    My last baby was posteria. I tried everything to get her to turn and then at my last appointment I was told she had turned the right way. That same night my waters broke but labour failed to progress for almost 2 days and I ended up being induced. The morning of my induction I had an internal and was told that she was posteria again... turned out they had known this for 2 days but the OB said that she "didn't want to worry me" as there was really nothing I could do at this stage. I found out the reason why my labour was not progressing after my waters having broke was due to her position ( something about her head and my cervix, can't remember exactly).
    I spent my labour walking and rocking on all fours trying to get her to turn, which she finally did! She was born without complications. I had been terrified after reading so many horror stories about posteria babies and trouble/pain in labour, problems pushing etc... but she turned. Babies usually do turn during labour.. they know what to do

    Good luck, you'll be fine
