I had back labor with both births--the first was 30 hours of it. :( The second was much faster and I birthed with my bum up in the air to relieve the pressure. 

 

One thing I was advised by a MW is to  (through chiropractic or a very trained massage therapist) strech out the pelvis/hips during the 3rd trimester and the muscles and ligaments surrounding--glutes, periformis...

 

I've been doing some good stretches at home and am still looking for someone to work on me. I really do carry tension in my glutes, back of thighs, so it does make sense for me so I'm going to give it a try.

 

I'm also starting on a homeopathic rememdy that is supposed to help with positioning and preventing tears, smooth labor, etc..

I suspect it was the baby's position for me.

I didnot have any back labour with my first labour. Just major stomach, hip and even radiating thigh pain during contractions. I pushed for almost 2hours and was utterly exhausted by the time baby was born.

With my second baby, he had an anterior placenta which I think was the reason he was stuck in a posterior position. My whole labour was back labour, I didn't even recognize the contractions as labour starting because it felt so different then my first labour. Baby kept trying to turn, I did every thing I could to help turn him-crawling on all fours, doing figure 9s with my hips, etc, etc and he wouldn't turn. I delivered him sunny side up but this time only pushed for 6minutes! Even with the back labour and posterior delivery, my second labour was easier then my first.
