Erin worked hard to deliver Harrison over 9 hours. He was caught in the "posterior " position whereby he was looking forward rather than backward during his travel through the pelvis.
This "posterior" position for babies is associated with going overdue, slower labour progress and the need for assisted rotation before final delivery.
Research has shown that the body positioning doesn't alter the frequency of posterior position occurring, and if you had a "posterior" birth last time, it is highly likely to occur again.
Most of these cheeky babies deliver normally but we are otherwise here to help.

Premature delivery

About 5% of babies deliver before 37 weeks, and many of these precious bundles spend time in the Special Care Nursery before they are ready to go home. Small babies often need assistance with breathing, maintaining body temperature and feeding. Their body control systems don't operate as efficiently and take time to mature. Babies born under 1 kg will usually stay in the nursery for up to 12 weeks. Whilst most over 1 kg will be home by 37 weeks equivalent gestation. It can be a stressful time for parents but it is reassuring to know that the staff and nurseries are delivering the best care for these little ones.

And incredibly reassuring to know you are in safe hands during an unexpected premature labour!

Most amazing place ever! My tiny 32 week boy is now almost 11 and it still feels like yesterday!
