    Default Any one had any luck turning a baby from Posterior position?

    I am 36-37 weeks and I just had an appointment with docters today and was told baby is in Posterior position. Probably explains my back ache. I was happy that she was head down as i have had to have a c-section in the past for a breach baby and thought I could feel a head up top (obviously bum not head lol).
    I am just wanting to get some opinions on if you think it is worth doing anything to try and change the bubs as i have read that it makes no difference. If anything, What worked for you?

    I am so hopping she will turn as I am trying for a VBAC (this will be my second VBAC as I successfully had one three years ago) I am so scared of having to have a C -section again I want to avoid it at all costs.

    I heard the spinning babies website is very helpful. My bub was posterior too but I didn't know about this site until after I had DS.

    My bub was posterior for a lot of the time from 35 weeks onwards. He would twist and turn and stay the right way for a bit, but still end up posterior or with his back towards my side. I tried spinning babies and it helped, but unfortunately I think babies kind if do what they want (mine did anyway!). When I gave birth he wasn't completely posterior but he wasn't quite the right way either. I hope bub turns for you and stays that way!

    Yes, I went to a chiro and ds moved straight away. He was oblique posterior so after the first app he moved his head into my pelvis from my hip then after the 2nd app he moved to the side then after the 3rd app moved to anterior. My midwives confirmed that he had moved. You would want to get a recommendation for a chiro in your area who is experienced with pregnant women, not just any old chiro.

    My chiro also recommended a change in diet as apparently my bowel was 'in the way' and got me to bounce on my toes regularly as I have a habit of leaning to one side/standing on one leg when standing. I hadnt even noticed I did that!

    Eta: first app was at 38 weeks and he was anterior by 39.5-40 weeks.

    My DS was still posterior at the last check up I had (38+1), he was born the next day and flipped into the right position sometime before then. So there may be hope still that your baby will turn?
    All I was advised to do was to get on all fours throughout the day. I didn't really do it though.

    My bub turned posterior the day before i went into labor. I discovered this when the contractions started and i could feel them in my back. I spent the day hanging on all fours on a gym ball or doing yoga. She turned that night. She has a scar still on her head almost 2 years later cause she grazed her head while turning back. So have hope till the last second cause they can turn very late. Also being on all fours gives them more room to turn.

    My DS was posterior and didn't turn until I was walking into the birth suite! Labouring all day with that kind of pain is not fun at all.

    My dd was posterior right up until transition despite my diligent attempts to make her turn.

    Both of mine have been posterior until during labour. Both times I got the sterile water injections and then by the time they had worn off, they had turned. I also spent the whole labour leaning forward or on all fours. The first one I didn't know he was posterior until I went into labour and the second I knew because it was a high risk pregnancy and I'd had heaps of scans, I'd tried spinning babies but that didn't work.

    My first was partially posterior, flipped during labour.

    Second was full posterior, not diagnosed til his head was delivered
