    Default Posterior lie - Preparing for labour

    Hi all,

    As the title suggests, I'm 38.4 weeks with Bub being posterior. I have 2 older children, 10 and 8, both born this way, never turning. I'd love to know what it feels like to NOT have a back labour!
    I try all the tips, no laying/sleeping on back (can't breathe like that anyway!), no reclining, sleeping on sides, legs apart when sitting etc but no luck yet. I also have a retroverted uterus (tipped backwards). I imagine this contributes to all 3 babies finding it more comfortable to lay posterior.

    Any suggestions welcome xx

    All my three labours were posterior too. I also have a retroverted uterus and nothing I did pre labour did anything.

    But the important thing is to have an active labour itself.
