Otherwise the most difficult were a slight brow presentation (the first time this mom didn't precip, she worked really hard to get this baby out) and one particularly difficult shoulder dystocia.
I can't help but wonder if the slight brow wasn't related to having had an ECV... although she had ECVs in two prior pgs without any issues.
I've been at two mentum anterior births.....one as a student at a multips birth, the baby came so quickly I missed it when my back was turned |(interestingly she had also had an ECV). The second was a primip, it was a totally normal paced labour and pushing stage, it went undiagnosed until the lips appeared at the perineum.

Do any of you have ideas for resources on how I can learn more about fetal positioning? I know about spinningbabies but specific stuff for during labor?

Man, those brow babies are killer to try to push out. And a 11.6 frank breech? I know 10 is the gold standard for how much a woman is supposed to dilate, but there are times when dilation HAS to have gone beyond that. Otherwise, how do you explain the vaginal birth of some of these babies? Amie I'd say the leg pain was definitely a sign that baby was malpositioned, not just during labor, but through the whole pregnancy. I would have had the mom doing chiro visits after the first time she complained and on an as needed basis after that (as needed to be determined by the chiro with the moms input). If it escaped me until the birth, I would usually do stair crawling and if necessary a chiro visit during labor (the guy I work with in town is willing to do emergency visits at any time of the day or night for laboring moms). I know not everyone would have those resources, but during pregnancy there are exercises that can be done to move baby and swimming can help out as well. During labor, the lunges or stair activities can help out significantly.
I was reading thru old threads and wanted to say yes, leg pain is indication, at least for me, of an asynclitic baby.
During the first stage, I had pain shooting down the top of my right thigh. I had an anterior cervical lip which my midwife massaged back during a ctx, and I pushed for an hour until she did that.
Baby's head pushed something inside, and my chiro fixed me up after a week of walking funny. I didn't realize that was what happened until after seeing my chiropractor.
