That sounds so similar to my story too.
Only midwife in town (pretty much in the country), homebirth, not a birth centre, DD turned posterior during labour (which I only figured out later) Laboured for ages, felt like one never-ending contraction, midwife very unsupportive, got cervical lip ( my midwife didn't even bother to try to push it out of the way) finally transferred to hospital when midwife got impatient. Probably would have ended up with a C-section but they wanted to really *punish* me so I had an episiotomy and high forceps delivery with no pain meds at all.
It frustrates me so much, because looking back on it I probably just needed more time and useful support. But I didn't know what was going on at the time - I was in so much pain I actually couldn't speak.
I'm so sorry that you went through all that.
It seems that so many of the traumatic births I read about involve posterior presentation. Which is strange given that it's a pretty common phenomenon these days that more 'care providers' aren't better informed about how to help a mom to deal with it, and to have the patience to wait it out.
Oh, and congratulations on your pregnancy. I hope that you have a lovely healing birth :
