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

Mom to ds 9 dd 7 : and dd 3/08 : if I can I go to

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.
