Posterior Positioned Baby

Hayls - March 1

Hi. I'm 39 weeks along and my midwife has told me thta my baby is in the posterior position, meaning it's back is in line with my back so it's head will come out facing me. She says that it's more painful and can be difficult to deliver posterior babies. I'm doubting it will turn now since it's head is fully engaged. Just wondered if anyone else has delivered a posteriorally positioned baby and how was the birth? I am also worried as I have vulvar varicosities, which can also cause complications!

My first child was in the posterior position. I was able to deliver her naturally with the help of the vaccuum. As I pushed the doctor turned her with the vaccuum. Don't worry it can be done.
