My friend is 2 weeks overdue and her baby is posterier

My friend is 2 weeks overdue and her baby is posterier.. she has done all right things, sitting backwards, sleeping on the right side etc her midwife is telling her she just needs to wait till she goes into labour naturally.. can you tell me if she has any other options?

Answer: Hi, It is really best to talk this over with your friend. A due date can be up to 2 weeks after the actual due date and the baby is still born at term, especially if the woman has a longer menstrual cycle. If your friend is 2 weeks overdue she will have the baby checked frequently and if she does not go into labour, arrangements will be made to induce the baby. Best wishes, Alex
