Statistics on Posterior babies

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Are there any statistics on posterior babies? I've been having a hard time finding them.

Like how many babies are actually born posterior, how many turn during labor/pushing. How do they know (other than ultrasound that they are posterior).

How does it affect the time of labor/length of pushing? Is there a greater likelyhood of tearing. Do these babies have more problems after birth breathing and such?

DD was posterior so I'd like to compare

it would be hard to find these sort of stats because many proViders (especially within the medical model) feel that posterior presentation does not mean a darn thing.

still, if you end up finding anything, please post what you haVe found here.

I had a posterior baby and I had an anterior placenta......dont know if that had to do with it or not but I think so. I knew he was posterior since at least 33 weeks on cause I had an u/s then and when I was in labor he was posterior. He didnt turn until an hour before he was born.
