I had a posterier birth Tracey. And all i will say is at least you don't DIE! Lol.
LMAO! I know EXACTLY what you mean!!
My 2nd was posterior.
I tried all these methods and more to turn her.
My midwife suggested sitting on a chair backwards(the back between your legs) I don't think that was mentioned earlier.
Posterior labour pain IS worse but luckily 2nd labours are usually shorter!.
The pain starts like a regular contraction then continues excruciatingly into your back.
I was under a hot shower the majority of the time until I was dilated enough for an epidural- I begged from the first contraction!!
Lily didn't turn and got stuck.
The Ob suggested trying forceps or going emergency c sect.
I said forceps as I was determined to go through the pain for a purpose!!
He turned her successfully and she was delivered with no problems or tearing. Forceps sound a LOT scarier than they really are!!
The labour was 6 hours all up including her being stuck (stopped moving down) for about 3 hours and I even had an epidural which apparently slows labour.
I later discovered she was stuck because she had huge shoulders and was 4305g ( 9pd,9oz ), Which was a kilo heavier than the ob guessed earlier.
I would discuss all options on trying to turn bubs and worst comes to worst Birthing options and interventions with your midwife/obs
If you have any other questions feel free to ask!
