    Hi ladies

    I am a little confused and wondered if you could help. I had a sweep today and midwife said straight away that baby was very low and she could feel his head. She couldn't however locate my cervix straight away and after feeling around for a while (sorry tmi) she told me that it was posteria and towards my back. She said afterwards that she had done a good sweep and I was 1cm dilated and didn't mention my cervix position again. Do you know anything about posteria cervixs? From what I have read it needs to be anterior for labour to commence so does this mean that I won't go into labour until my cervix has moved round and how / when does this happen? X
