    First bub was anterior placenta, and he came out normally, subsequent pregnancies and births placenta and presentation normal.

    Thanks everyone! Its good to know its not a given that all anterior placentas = posterior bubs (and also that its not always a terrible thing if they are posterior.

    Ill be having an epidural either way, so at least the labour itself shouldn't be too bad, but the recovery has the potential to be more difficult, but meh, I guess that's what giving birth is all about.

    Anterior placenta and bub anterior for all labour and delivery. I didn't have an ounce of back pain in labour thankfully.

    I had an anterior placenta, my OB never mentioned that this could affect baby positioning?
    I thought it was fairly common?

    Anyway bub was perfectly positioned for the birth - no issue whatsoever here.

    This. I have never been offered a csection on the grounds of bub being posterior. I would say because a lot of posterior babies turn during labour and birth-it is very possible to birth a baby vaginally when in that position.

    My first was posterior placenta and was born posterior with the aid of forceps...came very close to a c-section as he was stuck very awkwardly for 2 hours and the vaccum failed to get him out.

    Ds2 was an anterior placenta and was posterior aswell born with the vaccum as he was also stuck for a long period of time.

    This baby has a posterior placenta...Im only 27 weeks so not sure if she will be posterior during labour and birth.

    Just to add further food for thought: both my boys actually turned posterior during labour & stayed that way until birth! Wtf!

    I had posterior placentas and spent the entire third trimester sitting upright and both boys were perfectly positioned in the lead up to the birth but swivelled themselves around during early labour or in the hours leading up to labour.

    This pregnancy I'm slouching as much as I want!
