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

    I as also been told that it has a lot to do with the shape of your pelvis. My first baby was regular presentation, so I'm hoping that overrides an anterior placenta this time.

    I was wondering about this actually...after having two posterior babies the mw suggested my pelvis might be shaped in a way that encourages my babies to be posterior. Not sure if there is any truth in it but still something I wonder about.

    Anterior placenta once. I've had three posterior babies. Two turned in early labour with no ill effects to me or the labour. My third took forever to turn, but he was born completely tangled up in his cord with no real room to move so I think that prevented him. It was still a great birth though, just a different experience to my first two. Never expected my third birth to be my longest by several hours!

    With both of my pregnancies I had anterior placentas. Neither baby was posterior. My second baby was footling breech until 37 weeks when she turned.

    DD2 was ROL/ROP with an anterior placenta. I felt her turn during my 7 minute second stage and she was born normal presentation

    This. Except I did progress and pushed for an hour and a half but he was stuck. Didn't know they were connected but my birth resulted in emergency c section.

    I have had anterior placentas with both my babies and so has my sister. Both of our babies were in anterior positions. If u stay as active as possible during pregnancy it will reduce ur risk of posterior. My midwife said to me the ppl that lounge around more are the ones who usually end up with posterior position. Not that I'm saying everyone with posterior babies are lazy! Just saying it will increase the chance
