    Hi girls I have just got back into work, had a midwife appointment this morning. For the first time in "position" on my pregnancy notes she has put "LOA" what does this mean????

    Hi hun,

    Found this on one website;

    "LOA = Left occiput anterior i.e. the back of baby’s head is to the rear left side of your abdomen, which makes delivery easier"

    And this on another one "LOA - the back of your baby's head is on your left-hand side and towards the front of your tummy"

    Not sure if that makes sense??! Maybe give your midwife a call & get her to explain. xx
