My baby has been back to back for the last 3 weeks now!
How likely is it that he'll turn in labour?
I'm having a home birth and he's my first, I'm a bit scared it's going to make labour harder and longer from what I've read online. Anyone got any positive words? x
The above poster is absolutely right...try optimal foetal positioning from now....no more sitting on the coach lots of forward leaning and get on all fours dropping your shoulders to the floor....my first was op from 38 weeks and only turned partly during labour....don't let a posterior baby put you off tho hun...xx
Usually if baby is in a certain position, there is a good reason for it
Withh that said, 50% of all labors either start or have some part of it with LO back to back. However only 5% are actually born face up. So i would say you have a good chance of the baby moving
Also dont be fearful of birthing a posterior! Idid it 100% unmedicated and intervention free! Water will be your best friend and counter pressure is amazing! It CAN be done! My birth story of my posterior baby is in my siggy
you know what i liked....get those therma care heat wraps (for around the back). But make sure you buy at least 2! i need two to fit around my bump, but that was nice during transition....you could also get a heating pad.
