    I wa just wondering if anyone else's little one is back to back? I'm a bit worried about the birth of mine because I've heard back-to-back can be exceptionally painful :/ I'm already in a lot of pain, unable to breathe, back pain, stabbing pains in stomach, can this all be because she's led against my back? Does anyone know of back-to-back births usually result in a section? I don't really want one at all, but I wanna be prepared when I go in rather than having it sprung on me half way through!!x

    My baby turned to back to back during my labour but turned himself the right way for delivery!

    My contractions were horrendous, I won't lie. But I managed to get to 7cm by myself at home.

    I then had the epidural and everything was lovely lol

    Its painful but do able xxx

    MW said my DD was back to back. And I would've said it wasn't too bad. I had false labour for a few days (contractions stopping and starting) But when it got going it was really fast. Whole thing felt like I needed to poop, and I had to get out birth pool at 4cm cos I couldn't 'not push' so needed morphine to slow contractions.

    Butkus active labour was less than 3 hours.

    I know a few women who went into labour back to back 2 were fine and baby turned and 2 had c sections. My sister was back to back and only turned half way during labour so my mum needed forceps to help but no c section x

    I had two back to backs first I had an episiotomy and gas and air with my second he turned just as I was 10 cm only had gas and air. I found keeping moving and leaning forward the best way to cope I was in agony laid down.

    my DD was back to back and almost 11lb and it wasnt that bad, i just had gas and they gave me an episiotomy and i pushed her out, it only hurt more when i lay down so id advise walking or being active as much as possible, i spent most of my labour on my ball bouncing or walking until i was 9cm

    Thanks! I have been starting to get quite worried about it, because I was kinda hoping she would have turned herself round by now, and because she hasn't I'm dreading a terrible birth!xx

    I delivered a back to back baby at 10lb with hardly a problem on just gas and air. Each labour and woman is different. Good luck. X

    My labour was part back to back as George was laid on his side. It's my first so don't have anything to compare it to but all I found was that my contractions were in my back until he turned and they were then in my front. I managed to get to 5cms at home on my own and then had gas and air and pethadine xxx
