    Hi all,
    I went to the midwife last week who told me that my baby had moved back to back position, with its spine against my spine. Is there any way i can get it to move back as aparantly this means a longer and more painful dlivery!
    Also any ways i can kick start my labour from next week as getting v fed up now.

    Cheers
    Kirst
    37+2 + fed up! :?

    Sorry can't really help about how to speed things up! you're a bit early yet though aren't you? Have you tried raspberry leaf tea?

    some ways to move a baby from back to back are by:

    * sitting with your knees lower than your hips as this will change the position of your pelvis and help your baby to move back to the correct position

    *regularly use upright and forward leaning positions as these allow more avaliable space in the pelvis for your baby to turn.

    * sit facing chair back and resting arms on the back of a dining chair

    *when resting/sleeping, lie on your side, preferably left, with a pillow between the legs and the top knee resting on the bed.

    * get on all fours and arch your back out.

    the things that i have heard can bring on labour are

    raspberry leaf tea
    having sex as sperm contains prostaglandin
    walking long distances
    bumpy car journeys
    eating a whole fresh pineapple.
