    If there has been active pushing for an hour and no head on view then yes, it is common for the doctors to come in and see what is happening. Depending on condition of baby then they will either let you keep going or suggest an intervention. As you said OP bubs head was at a funny angle, I would say that bubs head was acynclitic - so rather than coming straight down was slightly sideways. Sometimes this can be corrected during a vacuum, but not always. They should have offered you a debrief the following day to answer any questions and ensure you understood exactly what happened and why the decisions that were made were made.

    I went in to see my Ob 2 weeks after my first ecsection as I just didn't understand what went wrong in labour. He was wonderful, explained everything and it really did help me to understand that they did everything to 1) ensure my baby survived the birth journey 2) I survived her birth and lastly I got the birth I wanted. Unfortunately we didn't achieve the last step, but his explanation made me realise that I gave up that to achieve 1) & 2) and I felt a lot better after our talk. It doesn't take much of a wrong position of bubs head to throw the birth plan out the window.

    Did you use Mater Brisbane? They will provide you that debrief service, just call.

    I too had a posterior bub when presenting at hospital in labour and felt frustrated that it hadn't been picked up earlier as I'd spent alot of time laying down prior to labour due to back pain.

    If I'd known his position prior I would have forced myself to be more active to try get him to turn (may not have worked amyway as it didn't work during labour). That being said I had an anterior placenta so that probably didn't help them during my pregnancy I imagine.

    I guess at the end of the day bubs is here safe and sound and that's the most important thing. But I agree if you can talk to someone at the hospital it may make you feel better about the situation.

    I had a posterior labour, and though no one picked it up beforehand, when I was admitted, the midwife told me straight away - though it was pretty obvious to me by the due to the back pain.

    In saying that, I did have a 4.5kg baby that no one picked up on. Every check up we were told he was normal sized :/

    My midwife picked up that my ds was posterior throughout the 3rd trimester by feeling my tummy.

    Yup through the Brisbane Mater.

    After reading through the replies yesterday I decided to contact the Mater. They've replied to me this morning and are organizing for someone to get in contact with me to discuss what happened on the day.
    I know there was nothing I or the midwives etc could of done to prevent what happened but I would love to just know a bit more anout why it ended in a cesarean.
