I had a 30 hour posterior labour that ended in an emergency c-section. I went to the chiro every fortnight from about 16 weeks until I changed to weekly for the last 5-6 weeks. Sadly it didn't make a difference...

I had a posterior labour with dd, and the middie made dp press on my lower back through contractions which helped heaps. I couldn't get comfortable on my back to push her out and standing/kneeling was excruciating so I rolled onto my side and dp held my leg up lol. Ds1 and ds2 were normally, fast labours with minimal pain compared to dd. 3&5hrs with the boys and 16ish hrs with dd.

OFP is optimal fetal positioning.
I've had 2 posterior births and one anterior (only difference was I went to a chiro for the last) I'm of the opinion of when it's sunny it's sunny, my back still hurt when I had her just as much as it did with my others, the only difference was I had gas with my first and my second was a longer labour, I don't think they do them in WA but some hospitals do saline solution injections into your back (they just go under your skin, not into your spine or anything) they are apparently quiet painful (like a wasp sting) but are meant to be a very good low risk pain relief, they don't always work but they are meant to block the pain signal kind of how acupressure works.

I believe that this is best thing for pain in a posterior labour.

I had both. With posterior I didn't experience any back pain luckily. It did take 2 hours to push bubs out though, and he never turned.
With the second, it was a lot quicker birth (but I think this happens generally anyway). I had similar pain, but luckily my contractions were never closer than 3 mins apart, so I had time to rest.
Both births were really good.

My first was normal and my second and third were both posterior. I would not say the pain was any different but the length in time was enormous. 1st (normal) 17.5 hrs 2nd (posterior) 43.5 hrs 3rd (posterior) 47.5 hours.

They were doing a trial of the water injections and i had them. They hurt a lot but nothing like the pain i was in, and they helped a lot too. I think they are the only thing that stopped me asking for an epi. Dp also had to put a lot if pressure on my back.
With my next two babies I spent as much time as possible on my hands and knees. I was always conscious of sitting leaning forward and we very conscious of leaning forward once labour started.
I have had three anterior placentas but only one posterior labour so not sure if that makes a difference.
