I had an anterior placenta with my first. He wasn't posterior during pregnancy at any of my MW appointments. I did do almost all of my laboring on my hands and knees (for 12 plus hours). I think this might have been my body's instinctive kind of way to help him rotate and descend in the most favorable positions. I didn't have any back pain or anything in labor so I think it must have helped. i know that my midwives started telling me that the placenta was anterior at about 17 weeks, maybe 16 weeks. but all things considered it wasn't a problem and I didn't really do anything special to share.
I had an anterior placenta with my second, and I felt movement with her at about the same time I did with my first, which was around 14-15 weeks. I think with my first it was 14 and my second it was 15. Also, she (the one who did have an anterior placenta) was not posterior, even though my first, who did not have an anterior placenta, was posterior. So I have no idea how if that anterior placenta = posterior baby thing is true enough to really be a general thing, but I wouldn't personally worry about it. It seems random to me.
