I had a c/s after a loooooong horrifically painful back labor with no breaks (32+ hours) with a posterior babe who was also asynclitic (as we learned after the c/s, she was presenting more or less with her ear)
I then had a textbook labor and vbac with a posterior babe (anterior placenta, lots of spinning babies, no back labor and actual honest to gods spaces between the contractions!)
Next babe was in a beautiful position for birth, and it did indeed go very quickly, but it was one non-stop contraction and despite being shorter the intensity of sensation was something I never want to experience again.
This time I have another anterior placenta and posterior babe. I am hoping she turns, or at least that the labor goes smoothly so that I can work with my body instead of being overwhelmed.
I'm a belly dancer so I do a lot of pelvic rocking and whatnot anyway, and I do encorporate spinning babies/optimal fetal positioning ideas as they fit naturally into my life. I also realize that so much depends on the individual babe and on how they, uniquely, fit with the specific labor experience my body is producing. My smallest babe developed shoulder dystocia and we both had a lot of birth trauma as a result, my fastest birth was with my biggest babe... every babe, every birth is different! I just keep reminding myself of that. LOL
